LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Nov. 17, 2016) – The Atlanta Braves’ 2017 spring training season at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort features matchups against four 2016 MLB playoff teams, a trio of three-game homestands and an afternoon matchup with the New York Yankees.
Gold Glove outfielder Ender Inciarte and the rest of the Braves report to Disney for two weeks of training in mid-February before games get underway.
The Braves have trained at Disney since 1997 and are celebrating their 20th season at Champion Stadium. Their 2017 spring season will be highlighted by marquee matchups against 2016 playoff teams – the Toronto Blue Jays (Feb. 25), the American League East champion Boston Red Sox (March 3), the Baltimore Orioles (March 28) and the New York Mets (March 10, 25 and 29).
The Philadelphia Phillies, Yankees and Mets will be part of a three-game homestand March 8-10, one of three homestands for the team this spring. They will host the Detroit Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins on March 18-20 and the Tigers, Orioles and Mets to close out their spring season March 27-29.
Disney character appearances and special moments such as kids running the bases after every game are some of the in-game entertainment opportunities that make Braves spring training at Disney a unique experience.
