If the Astros have their way, the upper decks at Minute Maid Park will be filled with kids for the rest of the summer.
The team unveiled an unprecedented ticket promotion on Thursday in
which kids 14 years old and under can attend games for free in selected
seating areas until Aug. 23. Fans will receive two free tickets for
children with the purchase of each full price adult ticket purchased in
the Mezzanine, View Deck 1 or View Deck 2. The promotion, announced by
club owner Drayton McLane, is called “Kids Free All Summer.”
Tickets for this promotion go on sale at 10 AM Eastern today, both at the ballpark and at Astros.com.
As is evidenced by the food policy, not everyone gets everything right
all the time. But this one the Astros got right, and they deserve to be
applauded for it.
