INDIANAPOLIS - The National FFA Organization has partnered with four Major League Baseball teams for FFA Day at the Ballpark http://FFA.pr-optout.com/ events this summer.
FFA Day with the Kansas City Royals is June 23, against Chicago. FFA Day with the Pittsburgh Pirates is June 30, vs. Milwaukee. FFA Day with the St. Louis Cardinals is Aug. 11, vs. the Chicago Cubs and FFA Day with the Cincinnati Reds is Sunday, Aug. 25, against Milwaukee.
All four teams are offering FFA members, their families and friends, teachers, FFA alumni and FFA supporters specially discounted tickets to attend the game. Through attendance, local FFA members' participation in stadium activities, special messaging at each game and appearances by National FFA Organization mascot Flyte the Owl, the National FFA Organization hopes to raise awareness about FFA to large and diverse audiences.
A portion of ticket proceeds sold for the Royals, Cardinals and Reds games will directly benefit each respective state's FFA. In Pittsburgh, the team will offer a replica Roberto Clemente Pirates jersey or a replica Pirates hat to FFA members and supporters depending on their ticket selection.
"The support, level of engagement and willingness to share what today's FFA is all about that we've received from the Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds organizations has been outstanding," said Duane Brodt, public relations manager at the National FFA Organization. "Combined, we have the opportunity to put FFA in front of more than 150,000 Major League Baseball fans this summer and raise awareness about FFA, have thousands of conversations about the importance of our organization to share what we do throughout the country and engage our members, their teachers and loved ones, our alumni and our supporters."
FFA members and supporters who are Royals, Pirates, Cardinals and Reds fans can visit the MLB page on the National FFA Organization's website for more information about each of the FFA Day at the Ballpark games and buy specially discounted tickets.
