The Braves have become the hottest ticket in town when it comes to pro spots, and it’s not particularly close. Last season, they finished fourth in all of baseball in attendance, attracting over 3.1 million fans to Truist Park as they watched the Braves capture their fifth straight NL East title. On a nightly basis, the stadium is packed to the brim, making it one of the best baseball environments in the world, and the organization is only expecting that to be better in 2023.
David O’Brien of The Athletic reported yesterday that the Braves will no longer be selling season tickets after March 17th, which is something they have never done before. The reason for this is to make sure enough single game tickets will be available for fans that can only attend a certain number of games.

This is just the latest example of Braves fans doing their part to help this team remain elite. Atlanta will be a luxury tax team for the first time in franchise history this season. That wouldn’t be possible without their die-hard fans shelling out money to attend games.
Alex Anthopoulos has said it on numerous occasions; the fans are a critical reason why the Braves have been able to spend much more freely than they have in the past. Truist Park and the surrounding Battery area have changed this franchise for the better, and it should only create more excitement for the future of the Braves organization.
