SOUTH BEND – In honor of their service and sacrifice for our country, Express Employment Professionals, along with the South Bend Cubs, are providing two free tickets to all active duty and military veterans for the games on Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.
“We are incredibly thankful for the men and women who defend our country everyday and to those who have served,” said South Bend Cubs Team President Joe Hart. “Being able to provide our veterans and active duty personnel an opportunity to enjoy a great day at the ballpark is just a small way we can say thank you.”
“On this Memorial Day, many Americans will be honoring our fallen heroes by attending various activities, events or memorials,” said Express Employment Professionals Franchise Owner Norm Robertson. “It is the hope of Express Employment Professionals that we can help fill the stands on Sunday and Monday with our active duty military and veterans, as we all show our gratitude to those who have sacrificed, never forgetting that our freedom is never free! In addition to the solemn services that some will attend, enjoying America’s favorite pastime is also a great way to come together as a community. Nothing brings people together like South Bend Cubs baseball!”
In order to receive the two free tickets, all active duty personnel and veterans must visit the South Bend Cubs Box Office and show a form of military ID. This offer is not available over the phone or online. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Should either game sell out, lawn tickets will be provided.
Sunday’s game has a special first pitch time of 7:05 p.m. with gates opening at 5 p.m. with fireworks after the game. Monday’s game has a scheduled first pitch at 2:05 p.m. and gates open at 1 p.m.
