The influence of Atlanta hip-hop group, OutKast has proven to have a lasting effect.
Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves have just announced that they will be hosting an OutKast Night later this week at Truist Park and The Battery Atlanta. This upcoming Thursday, May 25, the Braves will be playing the Philadelphia Phillies when OutKast member, Big Boi will be throwing out the first pitch. No official word if Andre 3000 will be there in attendance.
When fans of the team and/or the hip-hop duo arrive on Thursday, there will see that The Battery Atlanta will have street names that are dedicated to the origination of OutKast. There will be an OutKast-inspired art wall and music from the eclectic pair will be playing inside and outside the ballpark.
The first 15,000 fans who purchase tickets for the game at Truist Park, will be getting bobbleheads of OutKast featuring both Big Boi and André 3000 sporting Atlanta Braves gear and riding together in a red convertible.
