Baseball is America’s pastime. And now Lilburn-Mountain Park Patch is giving you and your family or friends a chance to join us at the ballpark to watch the Gwinnett Braves take on the Charlotte Knights. You could win a Family Four Pack of tickets to the game on Friday, June 1 at 7:05 p.m. at  in Lawrenceville.

Entering is easy. Just scroll down and comment on this article by Tuesday, May 8 at 6 p.m. telling us why you love baseball or going to ballgames. We’ll randomly choose a winner from the comments.

All nine of the Gwinnett Patches are participating, so visit your neighbor sites and enter on each site. Each Patch will choose a winner, but you can only win one set of tickets.

Now, Play Ball!

My husband and I went to Lilburn Night at Coolray last summer and had a blast. Normally I find baseball slow going, but there were so many fun contests going on that the entire evening was entertaining. We hope to do it again this summer

My son plays t-ball at Mountain Park and has developed his skills over the past five seasons. His birthday is also at the end of May, he'll be 7, and would love to attend a Gwinnett Braves game with me, his father and sister. Thanks for the opportunity!

I love baseball. It's the perfect summer sport, and at it's absolute best at a small field.

We love baseball and would love to spend an evening with two of our grandchildren watching the Gwinnett Braves

I really enjoy watching the Gwinnett Braves at Coolray Field because you are so close to the action. My grandsons enjoy the promotions and seeing Chopper clown around. It has a real family atmosphere.

Baseball affords us the opportunity to dream and fulfill dreams. A lot of children dream of getting a baseball glove. Going to a game allows more dreams. The young dream of the future. Adults dream of days past. The players dream of winning.

Our entire family enjoys baseball, especially my husband and son. We'd love to take our twins, who are 6, to their first "real" baseball game! :)

I enjoy spending time with my friends cheering the Gwinnett Braves, especially on a summer afternoon, outside, when the weather's amazing!

We have never seen the Gwinnett Braves~Would love to take my 7 year old daughter and hubby to this game-Thanks

We have 4 boys and 4 girls so, sometimes going to see a baseball game is an affordable way to get out and enjoy something outside of the home.. as so far two of our boys have played baseball and enjoy the sport we would love to go see the gwinnett braves.

Braves, beer, brawts, babes.

We love Gwinnett Braves because minor leagues try harder. There's always good seating, and it's not too big and hectic to walk around the stadium while watching the game. The games are higher scoring, and the traffic isn't bad at all. And you can get Tomahawk beer, which is only sold in Braves stadiums!

We love Coolray Field and the Gwinnett Braves. So much nicer than hauling into town to sit in the nosebleed section where you need binoculars and spend a paycheck for parking and food.

Our family is on a tight budget so we don't get to do that many outings with our son. We love baseball and winning these tickets would be a great opportunity for us to have a fun family outing and enjoy the great American Pastime together.

Hey, take me out to the ball game!

My 7 yr old son and soon to be 3 yr old son are die hard baseball fans. They both started playing at 2 as soon as they could pick a bat up and they are naturals. My 7 yr old has growth hormone deficiency and looks like he is about 4, but he has the heart of a lion. When he steps on the field to play people are pretty amazed. Because of his size they don't expect so much in a small package. He never gives up and is so caring. His little brother wants to be just like him. Baseball is in their hearts and in their blood. My daughter just fell in love with softball after years of soccer. We all love the Gwinnett Braves games, they are full of family fun things and the kids love being so close to a "real game" I know they dream of playing on the "big" field one day with all of their heros they get to watch right now

Why do I love baseball? Baseball is the “Truest” of all games! It’s a game of skill, trust and teamwork. Like life itself, it's a game of live examples. Each player has to listen to each other, respect each other and trust each other in order to win. That's why I love baseball and it's also why I enjoy taking my wife and grand kids to the games. I like to see them watching each team all the while learning how to work things out together themselves. My wife and grand kids don't know they are also learning how to work things out together in life but they are. Baseball teaches us how to have fun and how to laugh. We all learn by watching other people enjoy life. Baseball is a wonderful life lesson. I love baseball because "We" are always right there n the game with the players.

My family and I particpated in Lilburn City Night last year and had a blast. I love the smaller stadium and it is very family friendly, the kids and I partcipated in the Kraft Cheese hamburger toss. I can't wait to go to this years' Lilburn City Night on June 14th.
Anna Trey-King May 08, 2012 at 06:17 PM
Haven't been out to see the Gwinnett Braves yet.. would love to check it out!
Diane Altonen May 08, 2012 at 06:32 PM
That would be so great to see the Gwinnett Braves, my kids, especially, my son would be so excited.

Baseball is a time-honored tradition where every live pitch, smack of a glove or crack of a bat floods my senses with memories of moments shared alongside loved ones separated now by distance or astral plane. An evening flight over the Heartland, revealing the diamond glow of rural ballfields offers the most assuring comfort that, as Americans, we're still on the right track.
