The Tacoma Rainiers are continuing to "Play Ball" with military families by providing a new promotion that will allow more military families to enjoy a day (or night) at Cheney Stadium without breaking the bank.

"We've always had the need to provide an enjoyable experience that can incorporate families and celebrate the hard work that comes with protecting the country -- both home and abroad," said Tacoma Rainiers Group Sales Manager, Chris Aubertin. "We are just honored in being able to give back ... we're not able to even open our gates without the sacrifices of the many brave men and women who serve."

In recent years, the Tacoma Rainiers have continued to expand their support of the military with help from USO Northwest.

"Our first major idea was creating the USO Heroes Suite to welcome a different military group for each of our 70 home games during the season," added Aubertin. "The USO has been a great partner and have really helped connect the Rainiers with thousands of service members over the years."

Military members, veterans and their families are invited to enjoy Tacoma Rainiers baseball during the upcoming season with the brand new 2020 R Military Family Plan.

"All South Sounders can be proud to live in a country that is protected and kept safe by the brave men and women in our nation's Armed Forces. Being neighbors with service members and veterans, whether it's at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Naval Station Kitsap, or closer to the park, means that every day is one for celebrating R military family at Cheney Stadium," according to the Tacoma Rainiers website.

The new R Military Family Plan provides an extremely discounted rate to enjoy close to 50 baseball games at only $300.

"Win or lose, you'll leave the stadium enjoying the experience and hopefully come away with a souvenir, autograph, or both," said Aubertin. "It's great whether you're a die-hard baseball fan or not."

The particular breakdown of available tickets through the R Military Family Plan are as follows:

The plan includes up to six tickets to 48 select games for only $300 (over $3,000 in value).

  • Every April/May game
  • Every weekday game (Monday-Thursday) June-September

Along With:

  • Two complimentary tickets to the Labor Day Weekend Party Deck, including food and beverage
  • Discounted weekend tickets June-September

Members must present military ID with a membership card in person at any ticket sales window at the Cheney Stadium Box Office on the date of the desired game.

  • Tickets are based on availability at the time of redemption.
  • Acceptable forms of ID include veterans, spouse, retired, active-duty and dependents.

The military support does not just end with the R Military Family Plan, either ... the Tacoma Rainiers will also host their Salute to Armed Forces Day game Sunday, June 14, when attendance for military, veterans and their families is completely free.

"Another idea we've had was to incorporate a Salute to Armed Forces Day into our schedule every year, which includes pre-game and in-game recognition of the Armed Forces, and is a highlight of each season," stated Aubertin. "We have also been able to host hundreds of moral/team-building events along with Hail & Farewells where everything is all-inclusive and takes all the planning off their hands so they can enjoy."

All active-duty, retired or Honorably Discharged veterans can also purchase reserved seat tickets to any game with a $1 discount with a qualifying form of identification.

The Tacoma Rainiers 2020 season starts Thursday, April 9, and runs through Labor Day.
