SGT Bob and the State College Spikes Present


Take me out to the ball game...  FREE!

Hey Folks!

Since 2016, "Veterans Row" has meant free seats for veterans at the State College Spikes!  An entire row of seats painted red, white, and blue, just for you.  And your family, of course!  Again this year, SGT Bob is not just the on-field face, but is officially representing and is the coordinator as well!


These 16 seats have been graciously sponsored once again by SGT Bob and our various sponsors.



Any veteran may reserve up to 4 free tickets in Veterans Row at any Spikes home game by:

  • Calling the Spikes ticket office at 814-272-1711 and ask to reserve up to 4 Veterans Row tickets for you and your family for the game you would like to attend, or by:
  • Emailing requesting seats in Veterans Row and don't forget to include a phone number and the date of the game you plan to attend!

Tips:  Weekday game tickets are much more available and reservations are best to ensure free tickets to any game subject to seat availability.  Veterans presenting some form of veteran identification to the Spikes ticket office on the day of a game may still be eligible based on the availability of seats. 

You may not actually sit in the row with seats painted red, white and blue, but veterans with reservations will be welcomed into the ballpark free!  

Let's have Veterans Row filled every game!

ON ALL SUNDAYS (VETERAN APPRECIATION SUNDAYS) Ensure you check in at the SGT Bob Table on the Concourse when inside the park prior to going to your seats so we know you are here!!

We look forward to seeing you and your family at a game.  Let's Go Spikes!
