Red Sox extend Tickets for Troops for two games

This release from the Red Sox:

The Boston Red Sox announced that the Tickets for Troops program, which gives fans the opportunity to donate their tickets to members of the United States Armed Forces for a select game, will be extended to the 1:05 p.m. August 16 make-up game against the Tampa Bay Rays and the 1:05 p.m. September 19 make-up game against the Baltimore Orioles. Both games were rescheduled because of rain.

For the Tickets for Troops initiative, the Club works with entities within the Department of Defense to distribute tickets to members of the United States Armed Forces covering all branches serving in military installations throughout New England, as well as the Red Sox Foundation/MGH Home Base Program, to distribute tickets to veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan with brain injuries and combat stress disorders, and their families.

Fans with tickets to the two make-up games on August 16 and September 19 who are interested in donating their tickets can do so by contacting the Red Sox ticket office at (877) RED-SOX9, or at the Fenway Park box office.
