Since 2010 Alpha Omicron Pi has partnered with Major League Baseball teams to host fundraising efforts in support of the Arthritis Foundation through our Strike Out Arthritis! events. A portion of the ticket price, purchased through the a specific AOII link, goes towards grants to the Arthritis Foundation. With ticket sales and attendance growing every year, this allows us to donate more to our international philanthropy.
In addition to these Fraternity-wide SOA! events, our collegiate and alumnae chapters host local SOA! events that also contribute to AOII’s overall mission to Strike Out Arthritis! Partnering with all 30 MLB teams gives us the opportunity to bring larger awareness, and higher participation in our effort to Strike Out Arthritis! We hope to see you at the ballpark!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between MLB Strike Out Arthritis! events and local collegiate and alumnae chapters’ Strike Out Arthritis! events?
Major League Baseball SOA! events are MLB games that are sponsored and hosted by Alpha Omicron Pi International Fraternity. These games are Fraternity-wide events, and all proceeds are donated to the Arthritis Foundation on behalf of Alpha Omicron Pi International Fraternity.
Local collegiate and alumnae chapter’s SOA! events are held at the local level and are usually hosted on the campus or within the immediate community. Chapters donate proceeds from these events to the AOII Foundation, who in turn grants these dollars to the Arthritis Foundation.
When will 2018 game dates be available?
We look forward to sharing the SOA! MLB game schedule as dates are secured starting in the spring of 2018.

How can I get involved with the Major League Baseball initiative?
The best way to get involved is to buy a ticket to an SOA! game that works for you. Then, promote the game to your friends, family and the community. AOII will post game and ticketing information on social media, so retweet or share the information that way to your friends and followers!
How do I purchase a ticket for the game closest to me?
View our list of upcoming games below and click on the team’s link for purchasing information. Ticketing information is also sent out via email to area AOIIs, as well as promoted on our social media outlets including Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Who can buy tickets to the event?
Anyone! This event isn’t just for AOII’s, it’s for everyone! The more people that purchase through our link, the more money raised for arthritis.
How much of each ticket goes to our philanthropy?
Depending on the MLB team, $5-10 of each ticket sold through the ticketing link goes to our cause! The rest covers the ticket cost to the team that we get at a discounted rate through our group, so no funds go to anyone but those two parties.
I filled out the form through AOII’s website (not the team’s website), now what?
Once you have filled out the ticketing form you should receive an invoice within 2-3 days. If you do not, contact Sherry Dutton, Director of Engagement via phone at (615) 370-0920. Once the invoice is paid you will receive your tickets via email the week of the game, unless notified otherwise.
