SunTrust Park to host Missouri vs. Georgia baseball on April 8
The first chance for the public to experience SunTrust Park up close will be Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. when the Georgia Bulldogs host the Missouri Tigers for the third game of their SEC baseball series. The game will benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale this morning at 10 a.m.
"This college matchup will be the first time the general public can really immerse themselves in SunTrust Park," said Derek Schiller, Braves president, 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."
Fans attending the SEC matchup on April 8 will be able to enjoy all of SunTrust Park's amenities - they can check out the Xfinity Rooftop, three levels of the Coors Light Chop House including Below the Chop that is directly behind the right fielder, or for a full view, sit above the crowd in the Home Depot Clubhouse perched above the left centerfield stands.
Tickets for the Georgia vs. Missouri game on April 8 will be $15 and group packages are also available. To purchase tickets go through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone at 800-745-3000, Ticketmaster.com or through Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at choa.org/firstgame.
