The grass is cut, the infield at Champion Stadium is manicured, and the Atlanta Braves pitchers and catchers have arrived at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to begin spring training!
This year, the season has an extra special flair, as we celebrate 20 years of Atlanta Braves Spring Training here at Disney.
Starting February 25, fans can take in the game-day action, when the Braves take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the first of their 18 home games. Other notable matchups include the Boston Red Sox (March 3), New York Yankees (March 9) and Mets (March 10, 25 and 29).
No baseball game is complete without good eats, and this year, new treats such as Cuban sandwiches, paninis and freshly made nachos have been added to the menu at Champion Stadium. Fans can also look forward to the return of fan-favorites like The Barbecue Smokehouse, The Slider Station and for the thirsty, the popular beer wagons that feature regional craft beers from cities of many Braves’ opponents.
For foodies and fans alike, Braves Spring Training is an experience you definitely want to be a part of!
Pitchers and catchers reported yesterday, and fans are welcome to attend workouts (Adult admission is $18, while child admission is $13) at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, which begin tomorrow. Be sure to bring a marker, as you could have the opportunity to get autographs from your favorite Braves players during practices!
There are still tickets available to Braves Spring Training games, and fans can purchase those through Ticketmaster outlets and at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Box Office. For more information about the Braves schedule, tickets and more, visit www.espnwwos.com/braves.
So grab your baseball hats and gloves and we’ll see you at the ballpark!
