Tickets remain to attend the Georgia Southern Baseball Dugout Club’s second Evening with the All-Stars on Thursday night, featuring former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz.
The event is at 7:15 p.m. at the Nesmith-Lane Building. Following a dinner and silent auction, Smoltz will share experiences from his 21 seasons in Major League Baseball.
Smoltz, an eight-time all-star and the 1996 Cy Young Award winner, spent 20 seasons with the Braves.
He was a key member of the big-three pitching staff that won an unprecedented 14 consecutive divisional titles, as well as the 1995 World Series.
Smoltz’s career began when he was selected by his home-state Detroit Tigers in the 22nd round, and it ended a year after he joined a list of 15 other names in 2008 with his 3,000th career strikeout.
Joining Smoltz on stage will be former GSU players Todd Greene and Everett Teaford.
Greene holds the GSU school record with 88 home runs and spent parts of 11 seasons in the major leagues. The Augusta native participated in the 2001 World Series with the New York Yankees.
Teaford, an All-Southern Conference selection while at GSU, made his major-league debut in 2011. He appeared in 26 games for the Kansas City Royals and posted a 2-1 record with a 3.27 earned-run average.
Tickets for the second Evening with the All-Stars are $75 for adults and $50 for children, while corporate tables that seat eight are $800.
To reserve your seat for the Evening with the All-Stars, call 1-800-GSU-WINS. Make all checks payable to the GSU Dugout Club.
