ROUND ROCK, Texas – The Round Rock Express announced a handful of additional relief efforts to aid in the recovery from Hurricane Harvey. For all remaining games in 2017, hurricane evacuees will receive complimentary tickets.
Fans from the storm-affected counties can show their driver’s license or other proof of residency at the Dell Diamond ticket office and receive general admission tickets for them and their family.
The Express has also partnered with the United Way of Williamson County to host a donation drive Friday, September 1 – Sunday, September 3 to aid in the cleanup and relief efforts in South Texas. Fans will receive two general admission tickets to Monday’s season finale for their donation. A list of needed items can be found here.
Fans who missed specialty theme nights earlier in the season will have a “last chance” to purchase an Express-branded wine glass ($10), beer stein ($10), tiara ($5), superhero cape ($5) and dog toy ($5), while supplies last, starting Friday night. All net proceeds will be donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Additionally, the team, along with Minor League Baseball Charities, will host a 50/50 raffle on Sunday, September 3. Fans can purchase raffle tickets from the time the gates open at 5 p.m. until the end of the 7th inning. The winner will receive half of the total funds raised. The other half will be donated to Minor League Baseball Charities, who will match donations from all MiLB teams this weekend, up to $10,000. All funds will go towards hurricane relief efforts.
Regular parking fees will still be in place for the remainder of the season.
The Express close out the 2017 regular season with this final homestand. The team will face Colorado Springs Thursday night before welcoming in the Oklahoma City Dodgers for four games.
