Military Discounts & Military Appreciation Games at Major League Baseball Games.....Time to grab the peanuts, hot dogs and cracker jacks

18 April 2018 by


Baseball is one of America's favorite pastimes.  The excitement of fans filling into the baseball park, indulging on peanuts, cracker jacks, hot dogs and beer, the thrill of the baseball bat crushing the ball into the stands.  It's a great way to spend the day.  

The MLB has a long history of showing support to the men and women of the Armed Forces. Each year, Major League Baseball honors those who serve and have given their lives while serving their country on Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day and year-round. MLB and all 30 Clubs support military programs for active personnel, veterans and their families through countless efforts including fundraising and on-field recognition. Learn more about MLB Military Appreciation.

Many Major League Baseball Teams love to show their appreciation of the military community in offering a Military Discount Program and/or Military Appreciation Events throughout the season.  Check out some of our favorites below!
