Macon Baseball announces "all you can eat" ticket packages for 2018 inaugural season
MACON, GA -- Fans won't have to wait until opening night to get their hands on tickets to see Macon's newest baseball team.
At a press conference Thursday morning at Luther Williams Field, Macon Baseball Team Owner Steve DeLay unveiled a variety of ticket packages for the 2018 inaugural season for the Coast Plain League's newest member.
"One of the key things you'll see as a common theme for all of them is we include unlimited food and drink for every single ticket package," DeLay said. "Every single one of our full-season ticket holders, our five-game plan buyers and our ten-game plan buyers will get unlimited hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, water, soda and dessert with every game they come to."
Refreshments aren't the only perks in place with the ticket packages.
"Everyone of our ticket packages will also have an exchange program," DeLay said. "If for some reason a fan misses a game, they can exchange those unused tickets for another game. We want to make it affordable, family friendly, and easy for everybody to use all of our ticket packages."
To make the packages affordable, the team is introducing different payment plans.
"The other thing we've done for all of our ticket package buyers is they don't have to pay for it all upfront," DeLay said. "Right now they just have to make a small deposit depending on the ticket package they buy, and we'll spread their payment out over six months."
The ticket-holder seating chart is in place. The first four rows in the front of the stadium are reserved for full-season ticket holders. Fans who purchase season tickets receive full waiter/waitress service as well as VIP parking.
In the 200 seating area, two different ticket packages will be created. Ten and five-game plans are available in the section.
As part of the stadium's renovations, VIP seating will be created along the third base line. Front row seats with circular tables will be placed along the fence providing fans the ultimate game experience.
Macon Baseball President Todd Pund says the team's approach is community first. With ticket packages in place, the team's next step is building a working relationship in the city.
"You just don't show up and expect to sell tickets,"Pund said. "We have to learn what the business community needs that we can help them be successful."
Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are available at the Luther Williams Field ticket office (478-803-1795) or visit the team's website here.
