Video: Tonight is 80’s Night at Coolray Field
Come ROCK OUT with the G-Braves for a blast from the past on 80’s Night. The bigger the hair, the better. Bright, neon clothing highly recommended. We’ll have an 80’s playlist and the best clips from those 80’s movies you can’t live without.
There were so many great songs from the 80’s, but finding the best is nearly impossible to do. So, with the help of the G-Braves audio department who have their ears to the proverbial grindstone, we have made a TOP 5 1980’s Playlist for you, the fans of the Gwinnett Braves. Of course, your thoughts and opinions are always welcome. If you can’t make it out to the game on Friday night at Coolray Field, here is a taste of what to expect. Let’s start the countdown…
No. 5: MC Hammer – Can’t Touch This
No. 4: Run DMC – It’s Tricky
No. 3: A-Ha – Take On Me
No. 2: Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up
No. 1: Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight
The International League South-leading Gwinnett Braves (32-22) continue their 10-game homestand on Friday with the first of a two-game set against the South Division’s second place team, the Charlotte Knights (29-25). First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM at Coolray Field. G-Braves right-hander Jair Jurrjens (3-2, 4.85) is set to oppose Charlotte left-hander Charlie Leesman (4-4, 2.39). The game will be broadcast on radio on WDUN 550 AM and 102.9 FM with Tony Schiavone calling the play-by-play.

We hope you can make it out to Coolray Field for this spectacular event and honoring of one of the greatest musical decades we have ever witnessed. However, if you can’t make it to the game on Friday, rest assured you will have a feel for what is going on in Lawrenceville with our Top 5 Songs of the 1980’s according to the G-Braves. Our Front Office staff pictures in their 80’s gear are coming soon. Stay tuned to The G-Blog in the coming days…
