Break out the cracker jack and head to the ball park for the Georiga versus Georgia Tech baseball game. The Kauffman Tire Spring Classic for Kids returns to Turner Field next Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. in the annual neutral-site showdown. With more than 20,000 tickets sold each year, the Kauffman Tire Spring Classic is one of the highest-attended regular season NCAA baseball games every season. Everyone is root, root, rooting for both “home” teams.
Proceeds from the event benefit the pediatric research of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Neurosciences Program. The Children’s Neurosciences Program works with other medical institutions to discover preventative and curative strategies for children with serious medical illnesses or challenges.
This is the second of three meetings between Georgia and Georgia Tech this season. The Yellow Jackets toppled the Bulldogs 7-5 in Athens on April 9, and they will meet again May 14 on the campus of Georgia Tech. Overall, Georgia leads the Kauffman Tire Spring Classic series with a 7-3 record. Who will win this year?
