MLB Atlanta Braves Return to ESPN WWOS Complex for Spring Training

The Atlanta Braves head to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for two weeks of training in mid-February, with pitchers and catchers reporting on Sunday, Feb. 19 and the first full-squad workout on Feb. 25. The team kicks off its spring training schedule March 3 against the Detroit Tigers, who return to Disney for a second matchup on March 31.

This will mark the 15th consecutive year the Braves have held their Spring Training at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Their first game was held as the Grand Opening event as they took on the Cincinnati Reds on March 3, 1997 in front of a sold out crowd.

The reigning World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees are headline some of Major League Baseball’s marquee teams slated to take on the Braves at Disney.
