(KFEQ)--The National FFA organizations and Major League Baseball announced a partnership this week for FFA Day at the Ballpark with four teams, including the Kansas City Royals.
FFA Day with the Kansas City Royals is Sunday, June 23, against Chicago. FFA Day with the Pittsburgh Pirates is Sunday, June 30, vs. Milwaukee. FFA Day with the St. Louis Cardinals is Sunday, Aug. 11, vs. the Chicago Cubs and FFA Day with the Cincinnati Reds is Sunday, Aug. 25, against Milwaukee.
All four MLB teams are offering FFA members, their families and friends, teachers, alumni and supporters specially discounted tickets.
Through attendance, local FFA members’ participation in stadium activities, special messaging at each game and appearances by National FFA Organization mascot Flyte the Owl, the National FFA Organization hopes to raise awareness about FFA to large and diverse audiences.
A portion of ticket proceeds sold for the Royals, Cardinals and Reds games will directly benefit Kansas FFA, Missouri FFA and Ohio FFA, respectively. In Pittsburgh, the team will offer a replica Roberto Clemente Pirates jersey or a replica Pirates hat to FFA members and supporters depending on their ticket selection.
“We have the opportunity to put FFA in front of more than 150,000 Major League Baseball fans this summer and raise awareness about FFA, have thousands of conversations about the importance of our organization to share what we do throughout the country and engage our members, their teachers and loved ones, our alumni and our supporters.” said Duane Brodt, public relations manager at the National FFA Organization.
