It's that time of year again, folks. The Kauffman Tire Spring Baseball Classic for Kids at Turner Field is just around the corner: Tueday, April 26, 2011, 7:00 p.m. Proceeds from the event go to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. If you're not familiar with Children's, you can read up on its good work for kids' well-being here.
I attend this event every year. For one thing, it's a great opportunity for a cheapskate like me to watch a game at Turner Field from right behind the dugout. For another, any time Georgia and Tech meet on the field of competition, it's an Important Event. And even better, UGA holds a 6-2 advantage in the event over the last eight years.
Tickets are reasonably priced at $12.00. All seating is general admission. Bring some extra cash to drop in one of the fundraising buckets that will be seen throughout the stadium. Click this way for more information and links to purchase tickets.
Whatever other plans you may have for Confederate Memorial Day, this is a great way to spend the evening.
