I do not have a military ID, so I would need you to escort me onto the base. I'm dying to get into this game (I've been to 51 different stadiums) and will pay $1,000 if you can make it happen for me."Any service member with tickets who gives them away or sells them could face "repercussions," said Eric Hill, the recreation division chief for Fort Bragg's D

irectorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. And spectators who aren't the designated ticket-holder could be removed from the ballpark.It's costing  and the players' union some $5 million to build the temporary ballpark that will house the first big-league game on an active military installation.The intent is to honor the military and families at Fort Bragg."We want people to honor that," Hill said.To fight ticket transfers, Hill said, each ticket-holder is required to sign documents pledging not to sell or give away the tickets and listing the family members they will bring with them. Service members holding tickets who are unable to attend for whatever reason will be required to return the tickets so they can be redistributed, Hill said.
