D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall (@DHallDbacks) announced via Twitter that the D-backs are offering free tickets for kids 15 and under to kick off the summer break. The offer is valid for games beginning today, June 6 through this Sunday, June 12, with the purchase of a full-price adult ticket for any section in the ballpark, excluding the All-You-Can-Eat, Home Plate Box, Dugout Box & 1st/3rd Box sections, and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Every D-backs game offers tons of fun for kids, including the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot, an area dedicated just for kids. The Sandlot is open for every D-backs home game and includes age-specific playground areas, Futures Field and a batting cage. D-backs Baseball Academy coaches offer free clinics at Futures Field in the Sandlot one hour before first pitch and at the end of the fourth inning. In addition, kids can sign up to be a part of the free D-backs Kids Club, presented by Raising Cane’s, in the Sandlot to earn prizes for every game they attend.

Adult tickets for games next week start at just $12 and are available at the Chase Field Box Office, by calling 602.514.8400 or online at dbacks.com/kids.
