This marks the 15th consecutive year that the Braves have called Disney World their Spring home. In addition to their practices, they will have an 18 game home schedule against Major League Baseball's top teams that Disney World guests can see.
Here are some of the highlights noted in the Disney Press Release:
Marquee opponents visiting Champion Stadium in March include the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets and Detroit Tigers.
Guests also will be treated to game-day entertainment and additional fan experiences in a way only Disney can do, from character appearances, to an exclusive On-Field Spectator Experience and kids running the bases after the game.
The schedule features three night games at Champion Stadium – the Washington Nationals on March 14 and the Houston Astros March 16 and 30.
