BAA partners with Texas Sports Hall of Fame on Lone Star Tailgate sponsorship, new member benefits

July 6, 2015

TSHOF logoBAA members will receive sharp discounts on admission and family memberships to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame (TSHOF) as part of its new sponsorship of the TSHOF’s Lone Star Tailgates for the 2015 home football season.

“We are actively looking for new ways to add value to our members’ Life and Annual memberships,” said BAA Chief Marketing Officer Peter Osborne.  “We are proud to add the Texas Sports Hall of Fame to a benefits package that offers significant discounts to the places the Baylor Family wants to go.  This sponsorship enables us to have a season-long presence for our alumni just steps from McLane Stadium and a great enhancement to our members’ Game Day experience.”

BAA members can choose from three different options:

  • BOGO for TSHOF admission:  BAA members who present their membership cards when they purchase a ticket will get a free ticket for equal or lesser value. The Buy One, Get One price extends to multiple ticket purchases on the same visit.
  • Family Season Passes:  BAA members who call Phyllis Trice at 800-567-9561 and identify themselves as BAA members can purchase a Family Season Pass for $40, a 57% discount over the standard price of $70.  Family Season Passes include free admission for one year (two adults and three kids, with additional children added to the card for $10 each); a 10% discount on website/gift shop items; your name in all issues of TSHOF Magazine; nominating and voting privileges; and a one-year subscription to Texas Monthly magazine.
  • Tailgate Ticket Discount:  BAA members will only pay $35 for the TSHOF’s $50 Lone Star Tailgate VIP package.  The VIP ticket, which does not include a ticket to the football game, includes a parking pass for a downtown lot just five minutes away, luxury limo shuttle service to the TSHOF, entry into the museum, a complimentary barbecue plate and beverage (beer and wine not included in VIP ticket but available at a cash bar).   BAA members can purchase their discounted tickets by calling Phyllis Trice at either 800-567-9561 or 254-756-1633 and identifying yourself as a BAA member. If more than 100 BAA members purchase tailgate tickets for a given game, the TSHOF will make a donation to the BAA’s Legacy Scholarship Fund.

VIP tickets also allow fans to come before and after kickoff to watch other televised games, tour the museum, and meet the day’s celebrity host (many are TSHOF inductees) for each game. These celebrities will sign autographs and take photos a couple of hours before each game with VIPs at no charge. VIP tickets will be required for entry and will be checked by staff or security. There will also be a complimentary photo booth available for VIP patrons. VIP tickets also entitle guests to a 10% gift shop discount.

Please Note:  The BAA will be hosting its annual Homecoming Tailgate at the TSHOF this year and will be sending out purchase information separately that will reflect an even lower price.

“We are excited to partner with the Baylor Alumni Association,” said Texas Sports Hall of Fame President/CEO Jared Mosley.  Our proximity to the Baylor campus makes this a great opportunity to showcase what we feel is one of the state’s great treasures for sports fans and enthusiasts.  We look forward to growing our collegiate and business partnerships that we are confident will provide great visibility and interest in the the city of Waco and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.”
