Atlanta Braves Offer Free Tickets To Florida Residents Displaced By Hurricane Irma

The Atlanta Braves are joining in on the efforts to comfort those who are being displaced by Hurricane Irma.

On Thursday, the MLB franchise announced it would be offering free tickets to this weekend’s game against the Miami Marlins to those who present a Florida state ID.

“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, in a statement. “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.”

This promotion follows in the spirit of many others we saw after Hurricane Harvey struck the Houston area and caused catastrophic flooding.

Schools like Baylor and SMU offered free tickets and meal vouchers to those who were affected.

Now, the Braves are doing their part to help their neighbors in the south.

The Braves and Marlins are set to face off throughout the weekend, with free tickets being available for Sunday’s game at SunTrust Park which begins at 1:35 p.m. ET.
