The Braves concluded their 2018 home spring training schedule on March 24 and will now shift their attention to Opening Day on Thursday, March 29, when they head back to Atlanta to begin the regular season at Sun Trust Park with a three-game home stand against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Atlanta’s young but impressive lineup contains several seasoned veterans and a bevy of talented newcomers, so watching this team this team all season should be an exciting proposition for Braves fans.
