DragonCon weekend is going to start off with a charity Baseball game and Lucy will be calling “Play Ball” to start the game. This will also lead to a very busy weekend for Lucy at DragonCon with autograph signings, panels and Photo Ops!
The following is from Mind of the Geek site:
Dragon Con, Atlanta’s internationally known pop culture, fantasy and sci-fi convention, will be sharing its cash and colorful enthusiasm for charitable causes at several area events during its annual convention. The convention will host Dragon Con night at Turner Field, scheduled for Thursday, August 29th. The game –the Braves versus the Cleveland Indians– will be augmented all evening with Dragon Con-centered events, including a pregame on-field costume parade led by Lou Ferrigno (TV’s The Incredible Hulk), a first pitch by Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), and Lucy Lawless (Xena, Spartacus) will call “Play Ball!” to start the game. The costume parade starts at 6:30 p.m. and the first pitch will be at 7:10 p.m. Parade participants must be at Turner Field before 6 p.m. and shuttle transportation will be provided from the Marriott Marquis starting at 4:30 p.m.
A portion of the price of each ticket will go toward Dragon Con’s three official charities – Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, Georgia Conservancy and Marcus Autism Center. Tickets start at $7 and must be purchased from this website to support the charities: www.braves.com/dragoncon. Other charitable events hosted by Dragon Con include a charity auction, an artwork project, and a blood drive for LifeSouth.
