This is the final season the Atlanta Braves play at Turner Field before moving to SunTrust Park in Cobb County, which means the final LGBT Night at the not-so-old ballpark. And this year, the team is stepping it up even more for the big game against the Chicago Cubs on Friday, June 10.
Team officials have moved the pregame patio party from last year’s spot at the Top of the Chop to the Right Field Patio in anticipation of more folks being in attendance this year. Plus they’ve added a live performance from the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus and are throwing in a fancy Pride-inspired commemorative Braves hat (see right).
“We look forward to welcoming the LGBT community back to Turner Field this June for the sixth annual LGBT Night and know the night will once again be a huge success,” said Adam Zimmerman, vice president of marketing for the Atlanta Braves.
$5.00 from every ticket package purchased will go to LGBT homeless youth shelter Lost-n-Found Youth, and Friday Night Fireworks will follow after the game.
