OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Dodgers are teaming up with the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board and Community Health Charities to present American Indian Health Fund Night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The American Indian Health Fund is a joint venture started by the two Oklahoma City non-profits in 2017 with a goal of raising $3 million in three years that will be used to support and create programs to improve American Indians’ health and to cover funding gaps for existing programs that are not being addressed.

Fans can purchase tickets for the Aug. 17 game against the Iowa Cubs for a special rate of $16, which includes a free limited edition OKC Dodgers hat, game program and a post-game fireworks show.

From each ticket sold $2 will go to the American Indian Health Fund and the seats will be located at field level with AIHF families.

“We consider ourselves such an important community asset, and we have 70 baseball games throughout every season that we try to identify groups of people that want to come out and have an enjoyable activity together,” OKC Dodgers President and General Manager Michael Byrnes. “We want to greet and make sure there is an enjoyable experience for everyone that walks through the gates.”

Gates open at 6 p.m. and the game begins at 7 p.m. Byrnes noted that the game will also coincide with Military Appreciation Night, with a nod to the great history of Native American military service.

Tickets can be purchased now by calling (405) 218-2110 or by visiting https://groupmatics.events/event/Americanindian8.
