In the second game of the baseball season, the Gwinnett Braves will welcome future hall of fame inductee and former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, a strong kick-off the the Class AAA team’s promotional events schedule.

The G-Braves released the full schedule Monday and it includes the return of fireworks following every Friday home game, three bobblehead nights, two charity jersey auctions and visits from Jones and Ron Gant.

Gant visits on July 19 to coincide with a bobblehead of the former Atlanta Braves outiflelder. The G-Braves also scheduled bobbleheads for former G-Braves Mike Minor (June 7) and Julio Teheran (July 5), both pitching with the Atlanta Braves.

Other appearances include mascots from The Fur Circus, Duck Dynasty’s Mountain Man and WWE’s Sgt. Slaughter.

The alternate jersey auctions are scheduled for June 7, benefitting Gwinnett Medical Center’s non-profit foundation and on June 27, benefitting the Fisher House Foundation for military families.

Giveaways include fleece blankets, mister fans, pint glass, a Chopper bank, lunch boxes and soccer balls and footballs. There will be two Bark in the Park events on opening weekend April 13 and on May 25.

Along with fireworks at every Friday home game, other weekly promotions include family Sundays, kids eat free on Mondays, buy one, get one tickets options on Tuesdays, baseball bingo and guaranteed win Wednesdays, giving fans half off future tickets with their stub if the G-Braves lose and $3 food and drink specials on Thursdays.
