Every year, Georgia Tech baseball goes up against UGA during the Spring Classic to raise money for Children’s Heathcare of America. I was pretty excited because its hosted in the Braves’ baseball stadium, Turner Field. Also it is a big game because every game because it is the cross state rival. It was predicted that Georgia Tech would not struggle, but the game did seem to be very exciting with the final score being 6-4. Here is just an interesting photo of the guys before the game.

I had a similar shot like this last year with the team during the National Anthem.

Right hand pitcher Mark Pope (19) did not allow a hit through the first five innings and earned another run. Cool view of the light coming in from the top of the stadium.
