The Georgia Bulldogs and Missouri Tigers will head to SunTrust Park on April 8, as the two teams are set to face off at the new home of the Atlanta Braves. The contest between SEC rivals will be the first college baseball game in the ballpark’s history.
Georgia will host Mizzou in the 1:30 p.m. EST game, which will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Tickets went on sale Wednesday morning.
“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.
