The National Baseball Congress World Series begins this Friday, July 30th. Throughout the series, there are a number of local merchants who are giving out free General Admission passes to the games. If you’d like box seating, the passes get you discount prices on upgrades. Of course, these are all probably subject to the “while supplies last” stipulation. If you have your heart set on a particular game, you might want to pick yours up early.
Thanks to my good friend Paul, who rounded up this information. Everybody say thanks to Paul!!! Thanks also to Eric Siever of the Wichita Wingnuts for filling in the blanks!
