ATLANTA —When the Atlanta Braves take on the Philadelphia Phillies Sept, 26-29, it is also Fan Appreciation Weekend.
One way to show their love is by inviting Season 10 “American Idol” winner and country artist Scotty McCreery will end his six-city Major League ballpark tour at Turner Field on Sept. 27.
In a free post-game concert, fans will hear the country singer perform new music off his upcoming album, “See You Tonight.” He is also singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch and lead the pregame Chop Rally.
Before the show, McCreery will donate $5,000 to the Braves’ local Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program. The Junior Braves/RBI Youth Baseball League offers kids ages 5-18 the opportunity to play baseball. Teams are formed in under privileged neighborhoods where recreation programs are most needed.
To purchase tickets for the game and free admission to the post-game concert, visit braves.com/tickets, the Braves Ticket Office at Turner Field, the Braves Clubhouse Store at the CNN Center, any Ticketmaster outlets or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
