Win Tickets to See the G-Braves

Enter to win tickets to a Gwinnett Braves game at Coolray Field.

Baseball is America’s pastime.

And now Norcross Patch is giving you and your family or friends a chance to join us at the ballpark to watch the Gwinnett Braves take on the Charlotte Knights.

You could win a family-four pack of tickets to the game Friday, June 1, at 7:05 p.m. at  in Lawrenceville.

Entering is easy. Just scroll down and comment on this article by 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, and tell us why you love baseball or going to ballgames. We’ll randomly choose a winner from the comments.

All nine of the Gwinnett Patches are participating, so visit your neighbor sites and enter on each site. Each Patch will choose a winner, but you can only win one set of tickets.

Now, play ball!

Baseball is just a great American tradition. It's always fun to be with family and friends, grilling out, and cheering on your home team! Especially spring/summer time in the south, it's just THAT much better. Go G-Braves!

I think I would have to agree. Thanks for commenting, Marissa!

Going to a minor league game is always a lot of fun! There is a greater sense of community! Great time to spend with family and friends just kicking back and taking in a game!

I love going to the games with my dad, reminds me of simpler times.

The only thing better than watching a baseball game is playing in one. Nothing beats getting up to bat with men on base and turning on an inside fastball, smoking a worm-burner past a diving third baseman.

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 like going to "Bark at the Park" (Turner Field) because unlike Norcross, they allow dogs in the parks.

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!

I've never been to a G-Braves game but I would love to go! I think it's a great opportunity for a family to bond. You can watch the game but can still talk to each other and create memories!

Our family is on a tight budget so we don't get to do that many outings with our son. We love baseball and winning these tickets would be a great opportunity for us to have a fun family outing and enjoy the great American Pastime together.

Hey, take me out to the ball game!

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.
