Quarterback Matt Ryan will be among other former Boston athletes participating in the Gwinnett Braves’ “Boston Strong Night” at Coolray Field on Tuesday, May 7. Former Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison and former Boston Celtics guard Dee Brown will also be on hand with Ryan for first pitches.

That evening, the Gwinnett Braves host the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, the Pawtucket Red Sox, for a 6:05 p.m. game. For every ticket sold via the online link gwinnettbraves.com/boston using the promo code STRONG, $5 will be donated to OneFundBoston.org, benefitting the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.

The entire game against Pawtucket will be a tribute to the city of Boston. Each Gwinnett Braves player will switch their walk-up songs for the evening to a Boston band, including Boston, Aerosmith, Dropkick Murphys, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and others. Video board elements, in-game entertainment and even select concession items will all be designed to make Coolray Field feel like an extension of Fenway Park for the night.
