The Braves have reached out to try and help those displaced by Hurricane Irma. The team is allowing those who are under evacuation orders from Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina to come to a game this weekend for free.
Atlanta Braves welcome displaced Florida residents with free tickets to the Miami Marlins series: https://t.co/6mAOwqWdpK— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) September 7, 2017
Atlanta is hosting the Marlins for a four-game series which started tonight. Those who were displaced can show up to the Braves ticket office on the day of the game to show their valid state I.D., and the Braves will offer you a free ticket to that game.
"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."
Friday's game starts at 7:35 EST, Saturday's game begins at 7:10 EST, and Sunday's game starts at 1:35 EST. The Marlins aren't scheduled to play in Miami again until September 15.
This is obviously a wonderful gesture by the Braves, and anyone who evacuated to Atlanta can take their mind off the hurricane for a little by attending a game for free.
