Braves Giving Season Ticket Holders More Perks

ATLANTA - JUNE 30: A general view of Turner Field during the game between the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals on June 30

The Atlanta Braves are doing all they can to get more butts in the seats at Turner Field. In addition to offering some of the most affordable season ticket packages in baseball (as low a $370), the Braves will now give season ticket holders one-third off most* food and beverage. Here is their spiel:

The Atlanta Braves are thrilled to announce our newest and tastiest benefit exclusively for Season Ticket Holders. In 2012 Braves Season Ticket Holders will receive 33% OFF FOOD AND BEVERAGES AT TURNER FIELD!* Braves Season Tickets are already a great investment, and now you will save even more when attending games. Best of all, the discount is completely transferable to friends, family and clients who use your Braves tickets.

Enjoy hot dogs, pizza, BBQ, McCann Burgers, soft drinks, and more for 33% OFF the regular price all season! Simply present your Season Ticket or seat locator upon checkout at participating Turner Field concession locations to take advantage of this discount.

McCann Burgers, eh? Heap burgers...

Now, before you think you'll be able to buy beers at 2005 prices, read the fine print*:

This discount does not apply to alcoholic beverages, and is not valid at the following locations: Chick-fil-A, 755 Club, Chop House, Georgia's Own Credit Union Club, at all portable or temporary stands (including Dippin'Dots, Bavarian Nuts, Sno Cones, etc.), roaming/in-seat vendors, or Club Level Action Stations.

What! No discount Dippin'Dots?

All jokes aside, I was figuring out how to present this and I was going to go with a making-fun-of-it angle, but then I realized that this is a pretty good little perk. And season ticket holders should get more perks like this. The Braves already hold special events before and during the season for season ticket holders, but by offering additional in-game perks they should attract more people to buy season tickets. Especially since this is a perk on something that people attending games are likely going to buy anyway.

So it's a good start, even a great start, but now they have to offer half-prices beer for season ticket holders. With as many degenerate drunks as we have in Atlanta people as there are who like beer in Atlanta, it only makes sense. So here's my challenge to the Braves front office: I dare you to cut the price of beer in half for season ticket holders. And if you do, then I will buy two season tickets.
