Officials with the major league baseball team said evacuees can get free admission to games when the Braves host the Toronto Blue Jays at SunTrust Park on Tuesday (7:20 p.m. first pitch) and the Washington Nationals on Thursday (7:20 p.m. first pitch).

Proceeds from both games' 50/50 raffle will be donated to help relief efforts for hurricane victims.

Complimentary tickets will be available to residents of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina who have been displaced due to mandatory evacuations in anticipation of Dorian, team officials said.

Residents who show a valid driver's license from the specific coastal ZIP codes that are under a mandatory evacuation will be eligible to take advantage of this offer. Tickets can only be claimed at the SunTrust Park ticket office windows -- while supplies last -- beginning at noon Tuesday and noon Thursday for each game, team officials said.
