INDIANAPOLIS — Thursday night’s Fourth of July contest between the Indianapolis Indians and their division rival the Louisville Bats is sold out. A limited number of standing-room-only tickets will be made available at game time (6:05 p.m.).
During the Fourth of July contest, the Indians will be giving away free rally towels, donning stars and stripes jerseys for the game and capping off the holiday with a post-game fireworks show, all courtesy of First Financial Bank and the Indiana National Guard.
During the game, fans will have the opportunity to bid on the stars and stripes jerseys worn by their favorite Indians players and coaches. Proceeds from these one-of-a-kind Independence Day jerseys will be donated to the Indiana National Guard Relief Fund.
The Indiana National Guard Relief Fund started in 2003 to provide financial assistance to Indiana soldiers and their families who experienced difficult situations due to the mobilization of family members or in times of financial hardship. The fund is a private, nonprofit corporation with the mission of giving monetary help to soldiers and military families in need.
The Indians will also be giving away rally towels to every fan in attendance and patrons will be invited to watch the skies of downtown Indianapolis light up from the comfort of their seats at Victory Field, with fireworks shows from both the Indians and the Downtown Freedom Blast.
Indianapolis’ downtown fireworks are scheduled to start at 10:00 p.m., while the Indians will launch their own pyrotechnics at the conclusion of the evening’s game.
Though the Independence Day game at Victory Field is sold out, plenty of great seats still remain for tonight’s 7:05 p.m. contest against the Louisville Bats as well as the pre-All-Star break weekend series against the Columbus Clippers on July 13 & 14. Fans will also not want to miss out on an exciting slate of promotions when the Tribe hosts contests against the Syracuse Chiefs, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and Louisville Bats during an 11-game homestand from July 26 to August 5.
Come out and celebrate summer with your Indianapolis Indians. Tickets for the rest of the Tribe’s 2013 season are currently available online at IndyIndians.com, through the Indians’ single-game ticket hotline at 317-269-2282 or by visiting the Victory Field Box Office on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
