Parents who pay child support can get free tickets so they can take their kids to an Iowa Cubs baseball game or to a minor league game in Burlington, Clinton, Davenport, or Waterloo. Bob Brammer, a spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General, says “Step up to the Plate” promotes child support awareness.Brammer says they sent out coupons to central Iowa parents who pay child support for two free kids tickets with the purchase of an adult ticket to the August 8th I-Cubs game, to recognize parents for their involvement in their kids lives. “Step up to the Plate” is a program coordinated by the Iowa Cubs, the Iowa Attorney Generals office and the Iowa Department of Human Services, and parents who live farther away from Des Moines got coupons for games closer to home at minor league parks in four other cities. Attorney General Tom Miller will throw out the first pitch at the I-Cubs game Sunday against Edmonton. Miller will say a few words about how important it is for parents who don’t have custody to spend time with their kids. Brammer says taking your kid to a baseball game is one way to create a good childhood memory. Brammer says the state has a variety of efforts underway to encourage people to live up to their committments to their kids, both emotionally and financially.
