LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (March 19, 2015) – Some of Major League Baseball’s marquee teams, including four reigning division champions, are taking on the Atlanta Braves at Walt Disney World during spring training in 2015.

The new-look New York Yankees came to town on Wednesday, March 18.
All-Star game closer Craig Kimbrel and the rest of the Braves reported to Disney for two weeks of training in mid-February at Champion Stadium at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, then began play Wednesday, March 4 against the New York Mets, who returned on Tuesday, March 10.
