Fan uses rain check policy

DUNEDIN – A ticket for a Florida State League game was redeemed at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium box office July 19, marking the first time in baseball that a fan has made use of the universal rain check policy.

The Dunedin Blue Jays created the policy at the beginning of the 2014 season, and they are the first and only team in Minor League Baseball to offer the rainout program.

The use of the ticket stems from the rainout July 6 of the Lakeland Flying Tigers versus the Daytona Cubs in Lakeland.

The program is set up so that fans from all over Minor League Baseball are able to use a rain check from any Minor League game for admission to a Dunedin Jays game. While the promotion is open to teams from all across the minors, as expected, the first redemption came from a fellow Florida State League game.

“I think it’s awesome that someone made use of it,” said Nate Kurant, the D-Jays director of marketing and social media, in a press release. “I’m grateful that our GM, Shelby Nelson, allowed us to try something unique and I’m glad that it paid off for at least one fan. Hopefully, it gains a little more momentum and more fans take advantage of it, especially here in the FSL.”
