Kicks off "BART Double Play Wednesdays"
All eyes will be on BART Board President James Fang tonight as he kicks off the extremely popular "BART Double Play Wednesdays" ticket promotion by throwing out the first pitch at the Oakland A's versus Seattle Mariners game at the Coliseum Stadium. The game starts at 7:05 p.m.
The pitch highlights the beginning of "BART Double Play Wednesdays," where fans can purchase A's Plaza level tickets for $2 and hot dogs for just $1 by calling 877-493-BALL or visiting www.oaklandatheletics.com. This ticket promotion has been going on for more than a decade.
"I'm very excited and honored to throw out the first pitch tonight because it kicks off BART's valuable partnership with the team," Fang said. "BART Double Play Wednesdays is the longest-running and most popular A's ticket promotion because it allows families to celebrate America's favorite past time for just $2 per ticket. Of course taking BART to the game allows fans to save both time and money as well by beating highway congestion and avoiding the cost of parking."
