In Major League Baseball, a “gold card” allows a recipient free admission into a game.
Fredericksburg Independent School District now offers a similar perk.
Beginning this school year, area residents age 65 and older can receive the “Gold Card Lifetime,” a pass that will give them free admission into any FISD home sporting event.
The card, which features a gold border and heavy-grade plastic, does not expire.
The pass is free and can be obtained at the FISD central office. It can be used for general admission into University Interscholastic League events, such as football, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball.
Reserve seats will still cost extra.
Superintendent Dr. Eric Wright offered the pass at previous districts he’s worked in and wanted to offer it to locals.
