Braves Day at SWES

World Series Trophy Makes Final Stop at Sweetwater Elementary
Posted on 12/05/2022
Sweetwater Elementary School is not only home to this season’s three millionth fan, but for one day it was also home to the World Series trophy! The Atlanta Braves kicked off a morning of surprises by first declaring November 18 Ms. Anita Outlaw’s Braves Day. In September, the Braves welcomed the Sweetwater fifth grade teacher as their three millionth fan to Truist Park. As part of the celebration, Outlaw received a personal visit with the 2021 World Champions Trophy.

The trophy’s arrival surprised students and delighted teachers and staff members. Fans excitedly took photos with the trophy during its last tour stop. The visit also inspired, as Outlaw says, students to keep dreaming big. “We could have the next World Series champion here in our school.” Outlaw said. “We have soccer stars, basketball stars, academic all stars and lots of other champions here at Sweetwater Elementary. Everywhere you look, we have champions in training here in our school system, and I am glad to be a part of it.“ SWES Student with World Series Trophy

Ms. Anita Outlaw’s Braves Day included more surprises from the Atlanta Braves. The Braves donated books to the school library and honored teachers with a catered lunch and Braves Hats.

Outlaw’s visit makes the first time since 2000 and the first time at Truist Park that the Braves have welcomed three million fans during the regular season. It is the sixth time in franchise history that the Braves have had attendance over 3 million. Outlaw also won free Chick-fil-A for a year, a shopping spree at the Atlanta Braves store, and the opportunity to say “Play Ball” before a game and be featured in Atlanta Braves marketing materials.
