Another reminder of just how awesome the St. Pete community is: The Tampa Bay Rays and the Tampa Bay Rowdies are offering free tickets to Florida residents fleeing Hurricane Dorian.

Both teams made announcements on Facebook. Florida residents who have left the East Coast just need to bring the Florida driver’s license to the box office to receive their free ticket.

The Rays posted the following on MLB.com: “If you were forced to evacuate from the east coast of Florida due to Hurricane Dorian, show your Florida Driver’s License at the BayCare Box Office at Tropicana Field on Sunday, September 1, and receive complimentary tickets to watch the Rays take on the Cleveland Indians.”

The Rays face the Indians on Sunday, September 1 at 1:10pm. Tropicana Field is located at 1 Tropicana Drive.

USL’s Tampa Bay Rowdies offered a similar sentiment on Facebook. ” For those of you staying in Tampa Bay, we’d like to extend an invitation to enjoy a night of Rowdies soccer in the heart of downtown St. Pete,” officials wrote on Facebook. “Please visit us at the box office tonight with your FL driver license and your tickets are on us!”

The Rowdies face Nashville on Saturday, August 31. The match begins at 7:30pm. Al Lang Stadium is located at 230 1st Street South.
