JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

Single-game tickets for the Mad Ants’ upcoming season go on sale Friday at Memorial Coliseum and through TicketMaster. The Mad Ants are also collecting clothing to aid those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria. The first 500 people who bring clothing items to the Coliseum on Friday will receive a free Mad Ants T-shirt, although they encourage people to continue donating even if they’re not among the first 500. Donations will be accepted 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“I witnessed the fury of Hurricane Andrew and Hurricane Erin as a Florida resident in the 90’s and the devastation these recent storms have brought is unimaginable. Any assistance we can provide with the help from this wonderful community will be a blessing to so many of the affected families,” Mad Ants president Tim Bawmann said in a press release. “Let’s make sure we show the world what the Fort Wayne magic is all about.”
