Birmingham has lots of Atlanta Braves fans who make that faithful trip every summer to take the family to see their beloved team play baseball! It's safe to say if you have a family as large as mine, you might be looking for ways to stretch your travel dollars and enjoy some added values as well.
A great tip that most folks aren't aware of are the $1 tickets! Yes, I said $1! There are 200 general admission tickets to each game priced at $1 and they are made available to fans beginning 2-1/2 hours prior to each game. General Admission seating is located in the Upper Pavilion area (Section 417R – 437R) rows 6 and above.
Fans can purchase these tickets at the Braves Ticket Office at the last window located closest to the Braves Museum and Hall of Fame entrance. You have to use cash and tickets are limited to one (1) per person. If you are purchasing for your family or members of your party, all members must be present at the ticket window and you must enter Turner Field immediately following ticket purchase.
College Students Discount
Most likely parents are still paying the way for their college kids, so another great tip is to have them present a valid Student ID and get 2-for-1 Upper Box tickets. This offer is valid for all games based on availability. Also, note that the offer is available for ticket purchases at the Turner Field Ticket Windows only.
For select games during the 2014 season, students with a valid college email address can purchase tickets in select areas of Turner Field and receive a special discount off the advance ticket price. Register to receive your special code. Each code is valid for up to four tickets.
Sunday Braves has become a tradition at Turner Field so bring the kiddos (ages 4 to 14) and join the Braves invitation to run the bases just like a professional ballplayer following the game…just have them line up on the Hank Aaron Ramp, near aisle 129, at the end of the game.
Special Braves Alumni Sundays feature former Braves legends in the fan plaza at 11:30 a.m. for hour-long autograph sessions. You can bring your Braves memorabilia and meet your favorite Braves from the past.
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15 and Braves legend John Smoltz will be available for autographs. What a great way to spend dad’s special day – Sunday Braves with the family!
