Nominate a ‘Veteran of the Game’ for Elmira Pioneers tickets

Veterans Day is a wonderful tribute to the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, but a single holiday hardly pays sufficient tribute to military veterans for their service and sacrifice.

That’s why the Ziff Law Firm in Elmira created the Veteran of the Game program.

We honored more than 200 veterans and active-duty personnel in eight seasons of Elmira Jackals professional hockey games at First Arena in Elmira, and when the team disbanded at the end of the 2016-2017 season, we successfully moved the program to the Broome County Arena, where more veterans were honored during the home games of the Binghamton Devils professional hockey team this past season.

Now we have expanded the program and brought it back to Elmira this summer for Elmira Pioneers baseball games at Dunn Field in Elmira to make it almost a year-round program.

The Pioneers play in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in June and July.

At Dunn Field, the honored veteran will be seated in a box seat along the first baseline with friends or family members, courtesy of eight free tickets from the Ziff Law Firm. During the Pioneers game, the public-address announcer will introduce the honored veteran and read a short biography of their military service. When the salute is announced, the veteran can stand or remain seated, and at the end of the announcement, Pioneers fans will likely do what Jackals fans always did — let out a big cheer.

Please nominate a military veteran or active-duty military personnel today for eight free tickets to see an Elmira Pioneers game this summer at Dunn Field.
