Washington Wild Things News Release

WASHINGTON, Pa. - The Washington Wild Things have announced their plans for the Senior Slugger Program, once again presented by AARP Pennsylvania, which is set for its third season in 2024. The program provides a free ticket to fans 50 years of age and older at all Wednesday home games at Wild Things Park.

These plans are part of a pre-promotional schedule release glimpse at the 2024 promo schedule, which will be released in March.

"AARP Pennsylvania is proud to partner with the Washington Wild Things for another season of the Senior Slugger Program," said Bill Johnston-Walsh, AARP Pennsylvania State Director. "This program reflects our dedication to the community by offering those 50 and over complimentary tickets to Wednesday home games. It's a great way to enjoy baseball and connect with others at Wild Things Park."

The Wild Things have eight Wednesday home games, meaning fans 50 and older can get up to eight free tickets for themselves while others can too. Fans must reserve their tickets in advance by calling the box office or going to the link in the email those registered fans will receive from the team.

Fans who have registered for the program at any point during the last two seasons DO NOT have to re-register for the program. Only new fans need to register on the team's website here.

"The partnership with AARP Pennsylvania has elevated the Senior Slugger program immensely. Since day one there has been genuine efforts to provide social experiences at the ballpark for guests and share the platform to educate residents about services offered," said President and General Manager Tony Buccilli. "It has been quite rewarding to see thousands of fans filling the stands, making memories, building friendships and enjoying America's Pastime."

All fans at Wednesday home games, including the registered members of the Senior Slugger Program, can take advantage of "Dollar Dogs" thanks to our friends at Berks Foods. The Pennsylvania Lottery is also back as a supporting sponsor of the program.

Wednesday games, as previously announced, will start at 6:05 p.m. Gates open at 5 p.m.
