Spring brings the Atlanta Braves back to Orlando for Spring Training, and the action starts February 26 at Champion Stadium at the ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World.
From matchups with the 2017 World Series Champions, Houston Astros, to other fan favorites such as the New York Yankees, this year’s schedule is packed with games you won’t want to miss.
With the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros announcing earlier this year they would no longer be holding their spring training in Central Florida, many wondered if baseball would be gone for good.
Fans of the sport can rest easy, as it was announced the Brevard County Manatees, Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, will relocate to Osceola County Stadium beginning in the spring of 2017.
Yesterday (March 6), as part of Spring Training, the Kissimmee-based Houston Astros played a home game against the NY Yankees.
Spotted in the stands cheering on her boyfriend, Yankees’ A-Rod, was actress Cameron Diaz right behind home plate at the Osceola County Stadium.
If you’re interested in possible future Diaz sightings this month, the NY Yankees (who are training in Tampa), will play the Atlanta Braves on March 8 at the ESPN World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.
