Season Ticket Drive Underway
MYRTLE BEACH, SC — The Myrtle Beach Pelicans have announced an exciting incentive for new and returning full season ticket holders. The start of the baseball season is less than 90 days away, making this new incentive extremely time sensitive.
The incentive is a prize drawing for full season ticket holders who re-new their plan by February 15 and a separate prize drawing for new full season ticket holders who buy their plans prior to Opening Day, April 6. The Grand Prize, Second and Third place prizes are the same for both drawings. Here are the prizes:
Grand Prize: VIP Weekend in Atlanta for two that includes tickets for two Braves games, airfare and a hotel stay.
Second Place Prize: A night at a Pelicans game in a luxury suite at Coastal Federal Field. This $500 value includes 16 game tickets in a furnished, climate controlled environment with cable TV.
Third Place Prize: One lucky fan will be able to coach first base for one inning in uniform & later join Garry Griffith & Bryan Dolgin on the Pelicans radio broadcast for an inning.
The new “Gold Club” full season ticket plan has less than 20 spots remaining. The elite Gold Club membership features a guaranteed parking spot, guaranteed giveaway items on promotional nights, a free knit sport shirt with embroidered Gold Club logo, and a 25% discount on all Pro Shop purchases with your Gold Club card.
The Pelicans quest for the “three-peat” begins on April 6 at 7:05 PM versus the Winston-Salem Warthogs here in Myrtle Beach. Individual game tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 10 at 10 AM. In addition to full season tickets, mini-plan packages are on currently on sale. There are still good seating locations available.
