The baseball team, which is a AAA division of the Milwaukee Brewers and the 2006 Northern Division Champions, has offered to give students free tickets to the April game provided that they meet goals set by the Sounds Reading Club in March. The prizes are divided (of course) into three bases and a home run. First base is a free kid’s meal at Wendy’s. Second base is a meal at Applebee’s. Third base is a free meal at the Rainforest Café at Opry Mills. With a home run, students get to go to the game and also receive a free book from Barnes and Noble.
While the baseball team will be providing the tickets, the Trigg County Board of Education will be paying for transportation. Eileen Kehrwald, secretary to McGinnis, said they wouldn’t know how much it would cost until the end of March when they know how many students plan to attend. All students have to pay is $6 for a “meal deal,” which includes an all-beef hot dog, a bag of chips, a drink and a cup of ice cream. Parents are also encouraged to come and can buy discounted tickets for $9.
