Hey G-Braves fans!
It might only be February, but I hope you’re all as
excited as I am for the best time of the year to start, baseball season that
is! I’ve been a very busy groundhog during the off-season promoting your
favorite team in the country. So much has gone on in G-Braves world since
the last time I posted my blog, and I’m ready to share it with you!
First of all, Gwinnett Stadium has a cool new name.
Your Gwinnett Braves’ new home is now Coolray Field. We at the G-Braves
office are all very excited about the partnership and the future of the
ballpark with Coolray Heating and Cooling as the title sponsor.
As for what I’ve been up to in the off-season, a few
weeks ago on Groundhogs Day, I arrived at the Yellow River Ranch, home of the
southeast’s official weather prognosticator General Beauregard Lee, for the
annual Groundhogs Day celebration. For those of you who have been
dreading the cold winter as I have been, I was able to bring joy as my shadow
was not seen. Hooray for Spring coming early this year!
The Great Shredder Event IV took place at our stadium
this year too, and I was especially excited to walk around and give my friends
pocket schedules for our 2010 season, as well as take photos with fans.
This year’s event was the largest ever as over 6,500 cars and 12,000 people
participated too. Over 150 tons of paper was shredded, saving
approximately 3,400 trees. Way to go Gwinnett!
I also spent some time delivering gifts to loyal Braves
fans who wanted to show their loved ones how much they meant to them on
Valentine’s Day. You can check out photos from these special
celebrations, as well as other events I made appearances at on the G-Braves website!
With a little over one month until Opening Day, I will
continue to make my way across Gwinnett County reminding fans that they should take
advantage of what should be yet another great season in Lawrenceville making
appearances at the T-Ball and Pee Wee Try Outs, Dacula’s Baseball Jamboree,
Collins Hill Opening Day, birthday parties and more!
I love “popping-out” of my home to visit my friends
across Gwinnett County, so I hope to see you soon!
Til next time,
Your buddy, Chopper!
