ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves are extending a warm welcome to those displaced by Hurricane Irma.
The Braves are offering free tickets to all Florida residents, as well as residents of the Georgia and South Carolina counties under mandatory evacuation orders. The tickets are for the Braves series against the Miami Marlins at SunTrust Park this weekend.
According to the team, Florida residents just need to show their valid Florida ID at the Braves ticket office the day of the game to receive a free ticket.
“We know how difficult it has been for those who have had to pack up and leave their homes as Hurricane Irma approaches,” said Derek Schiller, Braves President of Business. “We hope we can help take their mind off the storm for a few hours by coming to enjoy a baseball game at SunTrust Park.”
The teams plays the Marlins Thursday at 7:35 p.m.; Friday at 7:35 p.m.; Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 1:35 p.m.
Current projects have Irma hitting Florida on Saturday and moving up the center of the state.
