Kingfish Announce Military Appreciation Sundays Presented By Columbia College of Missouri

 

Kenosha, Wis. – Columbia College Military Appreciation Sundays will be in full swing at Simmons Field for the 2015 season. Kingfish players will wear camouflage uniforms and military members will receive ticket specials at each of the seven home Sunday games this season.

Columbia College Military Appreciation Sundays will honor those that have served for our country and raise funds and awareness for the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. In 2014, the Kingfish camouflage jersey auction raised $1,850 for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. Gold camouflage jerseys will be worn for all Sunday games (with the exception of July 12th). On Thursday, August 6th the camouflage jerseys will be auctioned off to fans post-game.

Sunday tickets for active duty military and veterans are $2 off. A military ID is required to receive the discount and purchases must be made in person at the Platinum Systems Ticket Office at Simmons Field. All tickets are based on availability.

In addition to Columbia College Military Appreciation Sundays, Columbia College will present the Military Member of the Game at each and every home game in 2015. The individual will receive two free VIP tickets and on-field recognition. To nominate a local military member or veteran, please e-mail Kelsey@kingfishbaseball.com.
