May 12, 2014
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - In honor of the contributions of our United States servicemen and women, Missouri State baseball is hosting Military Appreciation Day for the Bears' Saturday (May 17) home finale with Evansville at Hammons Field. All fans presenting either an active or retired U.S. military ID will receive a complimentary ticket to the 1:05 p.m. contest with the purchase of one regular price reserved seat.
As part of the day's festivities, the Bears will present the Wounded Warrior Project a portion of the proceeds from MSU's sixth annual First Pitch Night, held February 8 before an overflow crowd at the Bill Rowe Training Center.
With the mission of fostering the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history, Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001
The contest also marks the final home game for six Missouri State seniors, who will be recognized prior to the Bears' final regular-season game with the Purple Aces.
Tickets for Military Appreciation Day, or any of the Bears' three remaining home dates, can be purchased from the MSU Athletics Box Office at JQH Arena, or on game day at Hammons Field.
