The Atlanta Braves unveiled their promotional schedule for the much-anticipated return of baseball to Truist Park for the 2021 season. Highlights include an ‘MVFree’ bobblehead, presented by Truist, honoring Freddie Freeman’s 2020 National League MVP award and a two-part Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuña Jr. ‘Braves Win’ bobblehead set, presented by Xfinity, commemorating the duo’s iconic celebratory high-fives. The 11th annual Alumni Weekend, presented by Your Local Ford Dealer, will be held on May 21-23. Additional promotions include Pride Night on June 15 and a unique assortment of kids-only gate giveaways for every Sunday home game. The Braves home opener is slated for Friday, April 9, against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The 2021 promotional schedule includes more than 12 gate giveaways. Gate giveaways include a Braves cap presented by NAPA AUTO PARTS on May 7, a Ronald Acuña Jr. replica chain presented by Delta Air Lines on July 20, and a robust lineup of bobbleheads. The first bobblehead will recognize 2020 National League MVP Freddie Freeman, presented by Truist, on May 23. On June 2, fans will get part one of the two-part Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuña Jr. ‘Braves Win’ set, presented by Xfinity, with part two on June 16, presented by Comcast Business. Max Fried’s bobblehead, presented by Coca-Cola, will debut on July 1, followed by 2020 Silver Slugger Travis d'Arnaud’s bobblehead, presented by Delta Air Lines, on August 12. Braves pitcher Mike Soroka’s bobblehead, presented by NAPA AUTO PARTS, will be available on August 23. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Braves will celebrate their fifth annual Los Bravos Night, presented by Georgia Power, on September 10 with a special Ozzie Albies bobblehead, presented by Truist. The final bobblehead will honor retired Braves catcher Brain McCann on September 28, presented by Northside Hospital.
Returning this season are kids-only gate giveaway items for every Sunday home game for children ages 14 and under. The items include an ‘MVFree’ Freddie Freeman poster, a pair of Braves socks, a miniature Ronald Acuña Jr. bobblehead, an Ozzie Albies replica chain, a lunchbox in July, and a Freddie Freeman backpack clip in August for back-to-school. As part of these giveaways, Hope & Will’s Sandlot will be free on Sundays during the regular season for Kids Club Members and children of A-List Members ages 14 and under.
The team also has several specialty ticket packages for 2021 including the Braves Country 5k, presented by Mizuno, on June 5 and fan-favorite Star Wars Night on August 6. The team is bringing back the Silver Slugger bobblehead ticket package, recognizing the 2019 Silver Slugger award winners Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuña Jr., and Ozzie Albies as the Braves take on the Chicago Cubs from April 26 - 29. Fans can also experience Truist Park from a kid's point of view with an all-access pass to Hope & Will's Sandlot with the Kid For A Day specialty ticket package on April 15 and May 13.
Every weekend at Truist Park throughout the regular season, fans will be treated to Friday Night Fireworks presented by Georgia Lottery, Alumni Sundays presented by Hyundai, and Kids Run the Bases presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta every Sunday.
