Baseball fans who had to evacuate due to Hurricane Dorian are able to catch a free game in Atlanta this week.

The Atlanta Braves announced  that they would invite any hurricane evacuees to the Suntrust Park for free game on September 3 and 5. Complimentary tickets will be available to residents of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina who have been displaced due to mandatory evacuations ahead of the Category 5 storm. Tonight, the Braves will take on the Toronto Blue Jays, followed by a game on Thursday against the Washington Nationals.

Fans are able to accept the eligible tickets by showing a valid driver’s license from the specific coastal zip codes that are under a mandatory evacuation.

“Tickets can only be claimed at the SunTrust Park Ticket Office windows – while supplies last – beginning at noon on Tuesday and noon on Thursday for each respective game,” officials said. “Tickets are complimentary and should not be resold.”
