NORTH AUGUSTA – The Augusta GreenJackets, the Single-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, have announced their comprehensive promotional schedule for opening night on April 11 at SRP Park. We invite fans to mark your calendars to join in the pageantry of opening night as we celebrate a special milestone. The GreenJackets will kick off the first homestand of the 2023 season by hosting the visiting Down East Wood Ducks, a Texas Rangers’ affiliate, with first pitch slated for 7:05 pm.
As a part of this special celebration during this game, the millionth fan in SRP Park history will enter through the gates, with millionth-themed giveaways planned during the game, courtesy of Musco Sports Lighting.
“We are tremendously excited to welcome the Millionth Fan to SRP Park on opening night,” GreenJackets Vice President, Tom Denlinger said. “One million fans is a tremendous accomplishment in just four full seasons here in the CSRA, and we are thrilled to celebrate our fans with the millions-themed promotions we have in store.”
All fans in attendance will be able to register to be the “Millionth Fan.” One lucky fan will be selected as the Millionth Fan and will win the ultimate Augusta GreenJackets prize pack, plus other prizes and will have the chance to win a million pennies – $10,000 – in a skills-based post-game contest.
