If you’re a baseball fan, this is the time to be in Central Florida. Fifteen Major League Baseball teams are training in the state, and over half of them are stationed in the Orlando and Tampa areas.
The Atlanta Braves are training at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World. Their first away game is this Saturday, February 26, against the NY Mets in Port St. Lucie. Their first home game is the next day, Sunday, February 27, also against the NY Mets. A complete schedule of games is online.
Over in Kissimmee, at the Osceola County Stadium, you’ll find the Houston Astros training. Their first away game isn’t that far away, as they’ll be taking on the Atlanta Braves at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on February 28. The next day is their first home game, also against the Braves, on March 1. A complete schedule of games is online.
Tickets for home games start at $15 for outfield reserved seats and go up to $24 for dugout reserved seats. There is a $3 additional fee for certain “premium” games.
But we’ve uncovered a great deal for Florida residents!
Purchase tickets for the March 1 game of the Houston Astros vs. the Atlanta Braves at the Osceola County Stadium at the box office, and get outfield reserve seats for just $7 (half-price!). First pitch for this game is at 1:05pm.
