I don’t think I can say it enough — I’m damn proud to be a Braves fan. How this city reacted to the success this team had last season was like nothing I have ever seen before in sports, and I’ve been a die-hard since I came out of the womb 27 years ago. But the support hasn’t stopped since the World Series ended.
I’ve been to several games this season, and Truist Park has been filled to the brim nearly every time. On top of that, another 10,000+ people are enjoying the atmosphere outside of the stadium. It’s one of the best things this city has going for it, so it’s no surprise that the Braves are first in attendance through the first month-plus of the season.
FWIW. @Braves home game attendance (through 17 games) is at 631,407. Best in MLB.
And 74% of those fans have guaranteed me they could beat the freeze. @TruistPark

Now, the Braves have played the most home games of any MLB team, but still, they rank fourth in all of baseball in average attendance per game at 37,141. The only team that is significantly ahead of them in average attendance per game is the Dodgers, and there are a few more people in Los Angeles than there are in Atlanta.
This is something Braves Country and the entire organization should be proud of. They are the pinnacle of sports, not just in Atlanta but the entire Southeast. Organizations in all sports should aim to emulate their success.
