Baseball affords us the opportunity to dream and fulfill dreams. A lot of children dream of getting a baseball glove. Going to a game allows more dreams. The young dream of the future. Adults dream of days past. The players dream of winning.

I have two boys that play little league ball and they love to watch the G- Braves play! It makes for a close by fun-filled family night!!

I live next door to the family that lost everything on Sunday in a house fire. I would give the tickets to the kids so they can have some good old American fun. Baseball, hotdogs and apple pie.

Would love to take my son to a game!

Easy answer. Cost is excellent. Park is awesome and both kid and family friendly. Tailgating area is perfect for grilling and tossing the baseball with the kids. Thank goodness for baseball in Gwinnett!

We have 4 boys and 4 girls so, sometimes going to see a baseball game is an affordable way to get out and enjoy something outside of the home.. as so far two of our boys have played baseball and enjoy the sport we would love to go see the gwinnett braves.

I have been an Atlanta Braves fan since 1983 when my friend and I would go to Fulton co stadium and watch them play and consistently through the years. Baseball is one of my favorite sports! Now that I have boys, I want them to have the same excitement that I did and still do about baseball. There is no better way than to do this in my own back yard with the Gwinnett Braves.

We are new to the area and I think this would be a neat experience for my 5 year old son. He played baseball last year and he misses it.
holly frilot May 06, 2012 at 05:44 PM
My five-year-old would love for our whole family to go. Go Braves!
Andrea Jackson May 06, 2012 at 06:07 PM
My boys love going to Gwinnett Braves games! It's something we hope to do this summer as a Mommy/Sons date night. :)
Alicia Allen May 07, 2012 at 01:47 PM
We love Gwinnett Braves because minor leagues try harder. There's always good seating, and it's not too big and hectic to walk around the stadium while watching the game. The games are higher scoring, and the traffic isn't bad at all. And you can get Tomahawk beer, which is only sold in Braves stadiums!
Sarah Estes May 07, 2012 at 03:41 PM
We love the Gwinnett Braves, it is a great family outing.

Living in Gwinnett is so awesome & we LOVE watching the Gwinnett Braves. As a local Realtor, I believe this is one of the great benefits about living our area!! We are celebrating our daughter's college graduation & we are bringing ALL of the out of town family members to watch the Gwinnett Braves. It is such a great family event for building memories that will be with us forever.

There's nothing like a warm evening, a good hotdog, family and a Gwinnett Braves baseball game! It's one of our favorite things to do right here in Gwinnett County. Go Braves!

Born and raised in Virginia, I've been watching the Gwinnett Braves, formerly the Richmond Braves, since I was a kid. Conveniently, I moved to Gwinnett and the Richmond Braves did too! Baseball is my favorite sport and Gwinnett is by far my favorite team! I'm grateful I've been able to keep up with the same team for an extensive number of years and would be honored to win tickets to the June 1st game courtesy of the Dacula Patch. Go Gwinnett Braves!!!
Cindy Jones May 07, 2012 at 10:26 PM
We love to go watch the G Braves play and having free tickets would be awesome!

Growing up, my dad was an umpire, so i practically lived at the ballpark. Whether i was playing or just watching him call, i was, and still am, starstruck by the game. Dad can't call anymore, but we love to sit and watch games together, and talk about the "glory days" at the park. We havent gotten to go to many games in person, so seeing one together in person is as exciting to me as if i had won the world series!
Dacula O May 08, 2012 at 10:11 AM
Baseball is just timeless... Takes back to childhood memories that I want to pass along to my children. Love that we can do it nearby!
Richard Clemons May 08, 2012 at 01:10 PM
Hey, take me out to the ball game!
Cynthia Montgomery May 08, 2012 at 01:58 PM
Gas is still over $3, the floors need mopping, the laundry is two stories high, the clients are calling every hour, and dinner is PB&J... again! G BRAVES.....take me away! Close to home, cool breeze of the night air, sounds of children laughing, and the crack of the bat and all is right with the world again!

My 7 yr old son and soon to be 3 yr old son are die hard baseball fans. They both started playing at 2 as soon as they could pick a bat up and they are naturals. My 7 yr old has growth hormone deficiency and looks like he is about 4, but he has the heart of a lion. When he steps on the field to play people are pretty amazed. Because of his size they don't expect so much in a small package. He never gives up and is so caring. His little brother wants to be just like him. Baseball is in their hearts and in their blood. My daughter just fell in love with softball after years of soccer. We all love the Gwinnett Braves games, they are full of family fun things and the kids love being so close to a "real game" I know they dream of playing on the "big" field one day with all of their heros they get to watch right now

Why do I love baseball? Baseball is the “Truest” of all games! It’s a game of skill, trust and teamwork. Like life itself, it's a game of live examples. Each player has to listen to each other, respect each other and trust each other in order to win. That's why I love baseball and it's also why I enjoy taking my wife and grand kids to the games. I like to see them watching each team all the while learning how to work things out together themselves. My wife and grand kids don't know they are also learning how to work things out together in life but they are. Baseball teaches us how to have fun and how to laugh. We all learn by watching other people enjoy life. Baseball is a wonderful life lesson. I love baseball because "We" are always right there n the game with the players.

Baseball is a time-honored tradition where every live pitch, smack of a glove or crack of a bat floods my senses with memories of moments shared alongside loved ones separated now by distance or astral plane. An evening flight over the Heartland, revealing the diamond glow of rural ballfields offers the most assuring comfort that, as Americans, we're still on the right track.
