They’re coming back and bringing some of last year’s best teams of the league with them. Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves will return to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex for their 2017 spring training season. It will feature matchups against four 2016 MLB Playoff teams and plenty of home games, including an afternoon game 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.
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.
