CSG Athletes to Receive Free Saltdogs Tickets

Cornhusker State Games (CSG) participants will have an opportunity to attend a Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game free of charge thanks to a promotion announced today by the Nebraska Sports Council.

Ticket vouchers will be included in each 2016 CSG participant packet and team box (one per player).  The vouchers are redeemable at the Lincoln Saltdogs box office for a free general admission ticket to a Saltdogs home game on one of the following dates: July 19, 20, 21 or 31.  Those accompanying athletes will receive buy-one-get-one pricing on tickets purchased at the time of voucher redemption. 

The Saltdogs, currently in first place in the American Association Central Division, play the Kansas City T-Bones July 19-21 and the Saint Paul Saints on July 31.  Medalists in the Games are encouraged to attend the July 31 game, which will include a CSG Parade of Champions.

The 2016 Cornhusker State Games take place July 15-24 with competition in 68 sports for athletes of all ages and abilities.  In addition to the free Saltdogs ticket voucher, registered athletes receive a CSG shirt and Super Pass, which is good for admission to the Opening Ceremonies, SportFest meal and all CSG sport venues.

The registration deadline for most CSG sports is Wednesday, June 22.  Officials expect more than 12,000 participants. Those interested can register or find information at CornhuskerStateGames.com or by calling 402-471-2544.
