The Atlanta Braves announced today the establishment of the Braves' Good
Neighbor Program, a charitable project to be sustained by the proceeds of
the annual Braves-Minnesota Twins exhibition game. This year's exhibition
game, the third of a series with the American League Champions, is scheduled
for Atlanta Stadium, Monday, May 2 at 7:30 P.M. The game will be played in

Atlanta and the Twin Cities on alternate years.

The aim of the Braves' Good Neighbor Program is to promote, create and

sustain recreational facilities in the needy neighborhoods of Atlanta.

Chairman of the Board Bill Bartholomay, commenting on the Braves' Good
Neighbor Program added: "The Braves are proud to be in a position to

extend a helping hand to the families living in Atlanta's underprivileged
areas. We feel the most effective assistance that we can provide to our
neighbors can come in the improvement of existing recreation areas and

in the creation ard maintenance of new facilities. We sincerely hope that in
time the Braves’ Good Neighbor Program will increase in scope and will

become the most unique program ever implemented by a big league ball club."

The Braves’ Cood Neighbor Program is a continuation of Braves' charitable
ventures, which over the past 14 years has been responsible for the donation

of more than $700,000.
