World Series Trophy event this Thursday

Much has happened since earlier this month, when the Atlanta Braves announced that the World Series Trophy would be making a pitstop here in Milledgeville.

The lockout ended and players got back to work, while Freddie Freeman signed with the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Nevertheless, the trophy indeed will be in town on Thursday out at Georgia College's West Campus off of the bypass. Public viewing and picture time will be between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and there's no cost.

"Refreshments will be available. Fans can also meet the Georgia College Baseball and Softball teams, as well as Thunder the Bobcat," wrote the university in a press release.

Added the press release: "Guests are encouraged to enter West Campus from the 441-bypass entrance. To include as many people as possible, each group will have a limited amount of time to view the trophy."

The trophy is barnstorming around the southeast as part of a 151-stop tour, one for every year that the Braves' organization has been in extistence, going all the way back to the Boston Red Stockings, who later became the Boston Braves. The trophy will enter Middle Georgia next Saturday and hang out at the Dublin St. Patrick's Day parade, then head to South Georgia for a few days before coming to Milledgeville on the 24th, Warner Robins the 25th and Macon the 26th.
