2016 Baseball Picnic/Tailgate at Turner Field!

This year, we are hosting our 2016 Baseball Picnic prior to Clean Old Fashioned Hate at Turner Field (you know, against the bullpuppies). But the good news is that ticket proceeds benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, so it is a worthy event to attend. We know that many of you may be able to dip out of work a few minutes early to attend a tailgate but don’t have time to do it up right. So join us before the game for hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixins. It’s all you can eat too, so skip lunch to get to the tailgate even earlier!

To make this an even bigger and better event, we are partnering up with the Georgia Tech Young Alumni Council this year! So let’s bring all the Tech fans together in one big tailgate and have some fun before the game!

When: May 17, 2016, 4:00 – 7:00 PM

Where: Green Lot, Turner Field Parking (See Braves parking map)

Cost:
Picnic: $10/adult & $8/child
Game Ticket: $10/each

If you are wondering why you should care about college baseball, here’s a good primer for you.
