22nd and Final Season of Spring Training Baseball at Walt Disney World Resort Starts on Friday


Baseball fans visiting Walt Disney World Resort over the next five weeks will be able to experience the magic of the game up close as the Atlanta Braves hold their final spring training season at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Pitchers and catchers report Feb. 15, and the team will be at Walt Disney World through its final spring training game at Champion Stadium, a March 23 matchup with the New York Mets.

One of the surprise teams in all of Major League Baseball in 2018, the Braves will hold their spring training for the 22nd and final season this year. The club is moving its spring training operations to Sarasota County (North Port, Fla.) in 2020.

This year, baseball fans visiting Disney will have one last opportunity to take in some spring training action as several of MLB’s marquee teams – the Houston Astros, New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals – are scheduled to battle the Braves, winners of the 2018 National League East.

Atlanta’s first home spring training game is set for Monday, Feb. 25, when the club hosts the Washington Nationals at 1:05 p.m. at Champion Stadium. Additionally, the Braves will play two games against the power-hitting Astros (March 4, 17), and will play one game against the vaunted Yankees (March 18).
