The Atlanta Braves’ 2016 spring training schedule at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort is filled with games against marquee playoff teams, including two games against the New York Mets, runners up in this year’s World Series.
The Braves, who have trained at Disney since 1997, open spring training on Tuesday, March 1 at 1:05 p.m. against the Baltimore Orioles at Champion Stadium. They will later confront the Mets on March 8 and March 26 and will also face off against the National League Central champion St. Louis Cardinals on March 16; the Houston Astros on March 17, March 25 and March 28; the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 5; and the New York Yankees on March 30.
First baseman Freddie Freeman and the rest of the Braves report to Disney for two weeks of training in mid-February, then begin play March 1 against the Baltimore Orioles. Three games will be played under the lights at Champion Stadium – against the Washington Nationals on March 12, the Phillies on March 24 and the Astros on March 28. The Braves also face the Tampa Bay Rays on March 14 and April 1, and will challenge the Detroit Tigers on March 3 and April 2.
Braves spring training games always have unique Disney touches, such as in-game entertainment, Disney character appearances and on-field moments such as the kid-friendly experience of running the bases after every game.
