Wild Things Announce 2023 Kids Plans, Themes: Kids Eat Free Sundays

Free Ticket, Free Meal, Every Sunday

By The Washington Wild Things April 29, 2023

The Washington Wild Things have announced the team’s plans for another year of the very popular Kids Membership program, which includes Kids Eat Free Sundays, where all kids 12 years of age and younger receive a free ticket and free meal at all Sunday home games.

The announcement comes as a small preview of the full Wild Things’ promotional schedule, which will be released in full March 17. Kids Eat Free Sundays are back and filled with the following themes. Following registration, kids 12 and under will get a free ticket and a meal: hot dogs, chips and a drink, at every Sunday home game. Kids will have a chance to meet special guests, run the bases after the game and get autographs from their favorite Wild Things’ players.

Those who have previously registered for the program in the past few years of its existence WILL NOT have to re-register their children for the program.

“Our Kids Eat Free Sunday promotion is the most rewarding program we offer for so many reasons. Thousands of kids across the Tri-State have experienced their first baseball game at Wild Things Park and the memories we have been able to create for the families will last a lifetime,” said president and general manager Tony Buccilli. “This free program is designed for every child, not just aspiring athletes and sports fans. It has become more difficult to bring a family to sporting events, but we remain committed to providing a fun and affordable avenue where the family unit can consistently enjoy summer nights at the ballpark.”

The schedule for Kids Eat Free Sundays is as follows. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. every Sunday with first pitch slated for 5:35 p.m.:

  • May 28 (vs Tri-City ValleyCats) – Mascot-A-Palooza – Wild Thing will invite some of his friends from around the area to join him for the second Mascot-A-Palooza. Guests are to be announced.
