Last year we have over 500 between both packages. Any groups with 13+ can get a discounted ticket. The new stadium costs are too high to include free beer anymore. It's an early game time so you can get home at a decent hour or hit the bars in the Battery post game, and still get home at a decent hour.

As part of the Atlanta Braves University Days series, we would like to invite all of Eagle Nation out to SunTrust Park on Saturday, July 14 to cheer on the Braves as they take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. Join your fellow Georgia Southern Eagle fans for an evening of big league action!

$75 All You Can Eat Hospitality Package


Discounted Hank Aaron Terrace Tickets*
All You Can Eat ballpark favorites menu including soda & water
Cash bar
Atlanta Braves-Georgia Southern University co-branded New Era hat**



Last year these seats were in the Home Depot porch.

$35 Home Run Porch Package


Discounted Home Run Porch Ticket
Atlanta Braves-Georgia Southern University co-branded New Era hat***

The wife, while on a conference attended the Padres Universities game, got a free(pretty cool looking) Padre T-shirt.

Each university night is a different event. That school in athens has one, Tech, Kennesaw, and State.

The Braves used to do that at Turner Field and invite all the local colleges. Now with the move to SunTrust they have a specific night for each "major" university, GS, GSU, Tech, Kennesaw, and the school in Athens. The turnout for ours is always the best turnout. It doesn't hurt that the department head of the Braves group sales is a GS grad and gets us a employee discount on the event to make the ticket prices much lower. At Turner Field it was 50% off, it's lower at SunTrust.

Looks like the event has sold out. Tickets are no longer for sale and this far out I can only assume all tickets were sold.

EDIT: 755 tickets sold for the event. Which is 100 more than last year.

If anyone going will be getting an extra hat they don't want, I'd be willing to buy it off you!

So found out the reason they had to cap the sales - there were no more hats. We sold like 300 more tickets than ever before. You might be able to purchase one at the main clubhouse store. And glad to report they did not say Georgia State when introducing the President.

Good event. I bought tickets in the second round and had bottom level tickets under the overhang. They also had hats for sell in the New Era shop.

How was the ticket package that came with the social area?

The AC was wonderful. lol They had typical ballpark food, peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, burgers, bbq sandwiches, nachos, cookies, chips. Food was out from about 2:30 until the 5th. You didn't miss anything as there was no speakers. TK and Dan were there from Athletics. Wendell, Rachel, and Amy from the alumni office. The interim president was there and did go around shaking hands.

Thanks, it sounds like it was an event well done.

I'll tell you what. The Braves should be able to sign a few first tier free agents with the amount of beer that was flowing out in the left field stands. :cool:
