Get Ready for the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Season

2020 marks the first full season at the professional baseball team’s new Sarasota County home: CoolToday Park

December 2, 2019

The Atlanta Braves are finally ready to move into their offseason home in North Port: CoolToday Park. The brand new state-of-the-art facilities and stadium are hosting a full spring training season for the first time this February-March after a one-game debut in 2019.

2020 Home Schedule

The Braves will play 17 home games in 2020

The Braves have 17 home games on their 2020 Grapefruit League schedule. The first home game will be against their Sarasota County neighbor, the Baltimore Orioles.

The final home game of the season will take place March 23 when Atlanta hosts the Boston Red Sox before heading west to start the regular season on the road against the Arizona Diamond Backs.

Can't make a game at CoolToday Park? You'll have four more chances to see Baltimore play just a short drive from North Port in their two road matchups against the Orioles (Downtown Sarasota) and one against the Pittsburgh Pirates (Bradenton).

The Sarasota County-owned facility isn’t just for preseason baseball. With seven fields across 90-acres of complex, visitors can make good use of the facility any time of year during concerts, markets and other local events in the works.

Switch Up Your Seat

CoolToday Park has 8,000 seats – 6,200 fixed and 1,800 berm (general admission) seats – but the stadium designers don’t want you to stay there long. A spacious concourse walkway wraps around the entire stadium with numerous drink rails installed so fans can feel free to stop and watch a few at bats from almost anywhere.

Drink rails like this one line the stadium for fans to stop and
watch the action from anywhere!

The two-level seating in the park also features two luxury suites, and a 1st and 3rd base special-ticketed terrace with access to air-conditioned space, a full service bar, and 650 seats. There are also several sponsored areas to watch the game. Some are free, and some are more expensive than a regular ticket, but worth it!

  • Coca-Cola Corner – a grassy berm area stretching from the left field foul line to left-center. Let those kids run around while you pick an area to sit on the hillside (bring a blanket or towel for extra comfort). Be sure to pack glove too!
  • Budweiser Bench – Group seating area next to the grassy berm and below the scoreboard in left-center field. A popular home run spot!
  • Right Field Patio – a concourse level group area behind the right field wall.
  • Centauri Super Suite – Sit right at field level behind the wall in right center field and next to the bullpen. These seats will also be a hospitality area for a one-of-a-kind game experience.
  • Left Field Lounge – Group seating with service from a specialty menu. Yum!

Grab a Meal at the Ballpark

The Tomahawk Tiki Bar is just steps away from the open-seating grass berm in left field

Feeling hungry for a ballpark snack? The Braves are proud to trot out several unique food options around the stadium like The Chicken Coop, Fish Camp, the Braves Smokehouse and Greenfields to name a few.

However one of the most popular stops so far has been the Tomahawk Tiki Bar past the left field foul pole. The massive, open bar sells food and alcohol, most notably (and photogenic) the Home Run Rum Punch staying true to the stand’s name and Florida beachside location.

The Tiki bar and two-story team store for buying Braves merchandise were open year-round in 2019 for baseball fans and pedestrian visitors to enjoy.
