(Joliet, IL) – The Joliet Slammers, presented by ATI Physical Therapy, announced Monday new “loaded ticket packages” for the 2013 season featuring Slammers Loot and “all-you-can-eat” food items.

“It’s a crime to have this much fun,” Slammers General Manager Chris Franklin said. “Invest in your summertime fun with the Slammers and we will pay you to play! You only have to pull out your wallet once this summer. Use Slammers Loot like cash inside Silver Cross Field for concessions or merchandise. If you miss a game, no problem! Exchange your ticket for another date.”

Every package features the “Never a Wasted Ticket” program where fans can exchange any unused tickets for a different game, for the same or lesser value based on availability. With all packages except for the Blue Collar Buffet, fans can upgrade to a premium padded club seat for only $2 more per game.   

“The Blue Collar Buffet” is going to be available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday game this upcoming season. $20 gets fans a reserved seat in the ballpark as well as access to an all-you-can-eat buffet on the concourse for 90 minutes. For a standard 7:05 p.m. first pitch, that means the buffet will be available from 6:05-7:35. This delicious option features an ever-changing menu that features an entrée, pasta, three sides, a dessert and Pepsi products.

Fans can also purchase “The Buffet Bundle” for $60. This loaded ticket package allows fans to choose any three Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday home games to attend and enjoy the Blue Collar Buffet. On top of that, fans will receive $5 in Slammers Loot for every package purchased. Slammers Loot is money fans can spend on anything they want at Silver Cross Field during the 2013 season!
