Half-price tickets available for Zacks home farewell

Zack Greinke won’t leave Kauffman Stadium without a flurry of activity.

Greinke, pushing for the American League Cy Young Award, will make his final Kansas City appearance at 1:10 p.m. CT on Sunday against the Twins and the Royals announced a “Zack Pack” ticket promotion for the game.

Starting immediately, fans can buy half-price tickets for all seats priced $33 or less excluding the $7 Fountain Seats. In addition, all Field Box, Field Plaza, Outfield Box and Loge Level tickets purchased with the office include $5 in additional value for use at concession and retail outlets at the stadium.

Also, the first 10,000 fans aged 21 or older on Sunday with receive a “Greinke for Cy” T-shirt from Miller Lite. The club is also encouraging fans to wear those T-shirts or other Greinke garb and bring small signs of support at the season’s last home game which is not being televised.

The Majestic Team Store, located near Homeplate Gate C, will offer Greinke items, except jerseys, for a 23 percent discount in honor of his uniform number.

This won’t be the last start for Greinke, who has a 15-8 record and the Majors’ best ERA of 2.08. His finale is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3, at Minnesota.

In his last five starts, Greinke has allowed just one earned run in 35 innings for a 0.26 ERA while holding opponents to a .155 average. His record in those games is 3-0.

He’s been particularly effective this year at Kauffman Stadium, posting a 1.73 ERA at home. That’s by far the best home mark by any American League pitcher. He’s 9-3 with four no-decisions in 16 starts at Kauffman.
