You might know the Kannapolis Intimidators as the single A affiliate in the Chicago White Sox minor league chain. But they’re more than. They’re great supporters of the military, and - in partnership with the United States Marines - are offering two free tickets to ANY home game this season for “anyone that shows any form of Military ID, active, retired or a family member ID at the Intimidators Will Call Window.” Awesome!
The inspiration came from last year’s Military Appreciation night - where the USO of North Carolina set up a booth - and the belief that there was more to be done for the Troops and their families. The USO of North Carolina continues to be a community partner.
