|Atlanta Braves bring back 'Out in the Stands'|

The Atlanta Braves will host their second annual “Out in the Stands” event for LGBT fans of the summer classic during a Wednesday night showdown with the Arizona Diamondbacks on June 27.
This year's game will benefit Ben Cohen's StandUp foundation, an anti-bullying advocacy group based here in Atlanta. Cohen will attend the game and host a meet-and-greet session with fans, the Braves said.
The event was first organized in 2011 after Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell was accused of using gay slurs toward fans at a game in San Francisco.
McDowell allegedly shouted, "Are you a homo couple or a threesome?" at fans and imitated a sex act using a baseball bat. He was suspended and publicly apologized for the incident.
Last year's event benefited gay advocacy org Georgia Equality and drew some 200 fans to the park, Braves officials said.
Ticket's to this year's Out in the Stands start at under $20 for upper deck seating. VIP tickets, complete with a Ben Cohen meet-and-greet, are priced at $200.
To secure tickets, please contact Stacey Nicely at 404-614-1325 or via email at [email protected]
