Make plans to join the Atlanta 400 Baseball Fan Club on Thursday, May 31, for the 47th annual Metro Atlanta High School All-Star Recognition Ceremony at 4:30 at SunTrust Park. This year’s High School All-Star event will feature an exciting new format, which includes a pre-game, on-field recognition ceremony for the 2018 All-Stars. This will be preceded by our awards program held in the Konica Minolta Conference Center, located on the Terrace Level of the stadium. The awards program will begin promptly at 5:00 PM. Our guest speaker will be Atlanta Braves Executive Vice President and General Manager, Alex Anthopoulos.
Come and meet the stars of the future. Past honorees include Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, Zach Wheeler, and Brandon Phillips. Learn which school will receive the Pete Van Wieren Most Outstanding High School Baseball Program of the Year. Last year’s High School All-Stars are shown in the photo at right.
Admission is by advance reservation only. The cost is $30 for Fan Club members and $35 for non-members and guests. Both of these options include a ticket to the Braves vs Nationals game that evening. There will be no meal service at this event. Discounted parking in the Red Lot is also available for $15. We’re sorry, the deadline for making online reservations has passed.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: The Metro-Atlanta High School All-Stars Ceremony promises to be quite an event with 140+ people registered. That many people would put a real strain on the Front Office Entrance, so the Braves have given us the following new procedure for entering SunTrust Park on Thursday:
You will enter the ballpark through the FIRST BASE GATE. They will allow us to enter SunTrust Park beginning at 4:30, over an hour prior to the opening for the general public. PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT need a game ticket in advance to enter the ballpark. Tell them at the gate that you are with the Atlanta 400 Baseball Fan Club’s High School All-Star Ceremony.
Use the escalator or elevators to get to the 200 Level. The Konica-Minolta Conference Center is located on the 200 Level in the right field corner near Section 211.
Check in at the Registration Desk located outside the Konica-Minolta Conference Center, where you will be given your game tickets.
Please arrive at 4:30PM so that we can get everyone registered and distribute your game tickets. The Braves Executive VP and General Manager, Alex Anthopoulis, is on a tight time schedule with the June Draft starting next week, so we will start the program promptly at 5:00 PM.
Red Deck Parking Pass – If you ordered a parking pass, you will receive an e-mail from the Atlanta Braves by Wednesday morning with a link to your parking pass and instructions for displaying the parking pass on your smart phone. Parking will be in the Red Deck Parking Garage.
At the conclusion of the program we will provide instructions for time and place to gather for the pre-game on-field recognition.
If you have any questions, please contact either Howard Evans via e-mail @ email@example.com or Wayne Coleman – cell phone # (770) 241-1053.
