FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Fort Bragg officials are reminding would-be attendees of Sunday’s MLB game between the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins that tickets to the historic contest are nontransferable and cannot be sold.

Eric Hill, the recreation division chief for Fort Bragg’s Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, tells the Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/296bShU ) that giving the tickets away, whether or not money changes hands, could lead to some spectators being removed from the ballpark and “repercussions” for the service member who originally owned the tickets.

The MLB and the MLB Players Association are spending about $5 million to build a 12,500-capacity ballpark and bring an MLB game to an active military installation for the first time.

Hill says each ticket holder is required to sign documents pledging not to sell or give away the tickets.
