“This college matchup will be the first time the general public can really immerse themselves in SunTrust Park,” said Derek Schiller, the Braves’ president of business. “With the excitement building around the ballpark, we think we have a great opportunity to have a large crowd in attendance, which would mean a lot of money raised for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.”
Tickets are available for $15 through Ticketmaster.com, choa.org/firstgame or by phone at 800-745-3000.
“Our players and staff are very excited to have this unique opportunity to play the first game open to the public at SunTrust Park,” UGA coach Scott Stricklin said.
Another college baseball game is scheduled at SunTrust Park on May 9, when Georgia will meet Georgia Tech in the 15th annual Spring Baseball Classic for Kids. That game, set for a 7 p.m. start, also benefits Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
