Fan wishing to reserve a ticket package can do so with a deposit starting at $25 per seat for a 5-game plan and then spread the remaining payments over six months. Due to seating and grilling capacity, the various packages are limited to just 500 seats each to make sure lines are short.
“We wanted to make attending a 2018 Macon Baseball game affordable for all of our fans. Our All-You-Can-Eat ticket packages create tremendous value for our fans and our payment plan options make it easy for them to sign up now to reserve their seat,” said team president Todd Pund.
Team owners Steve DeLay and Jon Spoelstra have installed All-You-Can-Eat ticket packages at other teams they’ve operated including the Savannah Bananas a fellow Coastal Plain League team in which they are minority partners, who sold out all 25 home games during the 2017 season.
“We’ve seen first-hand how much fans love All-You-Can-Eat ticket packages. We’ve sold thousands at various other teams and look forward to delivering the same type of value for our fans in Macon,” said DeLay.
The team secured its’ first deposit from Macon-Bibb County Mayor Robert Reichert who was excited to sign up.
“These ticket packages are a terrific value and I can’t wait to enjoy the games with a hotdog and burger at a newly renovated Luther Williams Field next season,” said Mayor Reichert.

Future Announcements Coming. In the coming weeks, the team will announce its name, logo and merchandising, and key hires, as well as unveiling the designs for the extensive renovations and additions at Luther Williams Field.
