Spring is in the air. Well, at least it is here at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and that means Atlanta Braves spring training must be right around the corner.

The first wave of Braves players begin training this weekend and the first full-squad workout is February 26 with the home opener set for March 4 against the New York Mets at Champion Stadium at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Braves’ 18th spring training season at Disney will involve an 18-game home schedule that provides fans with an up-close and personal experience when the Braves take on marquee teams such as the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers and the Washington Nationals. And March 21 will be Military Appreciation Day when the Braves and Disney honors our veterans during the game against the Nationals.

Most games start at 1:05 p.m. ET, but there are four night games starting at 6:05 p.m. And in typical Disney fashion, there will again be loads of Disney entertainment, special fan experiences, unique food & beverage offerings and the opportunity for kids to run the bases after every game, which has become a popular tradition.
