Braves Home Opener


Atlanta, Georgia
Suntrust Park

Monday, April 1st – 7:05pm EST

Simply A Fan is a Nashville-based baseball venture that organizes and leads baseball trips to MLB ballparks across the country, while also providing a platform for baseball fans everywhere to share their personal baseball story.

Simply A Fan will be taking a trip to the Braves Home Opener for the second consecutive season! Join this day trip, road trip from Nashville as we go enjoy a day of baseball fellowship and camaraderie as the Braves take on the Chicago Cubs.

We will leave bright and early that morning to allow time for traffic and so that we can fit everything in pre-game. We will take a brief rest stop south of Chattanooga, and arrive in time for lunch at Murph’s, Dale Murphy’s new restaurant near Suntrust Park. After that we will have our behind-the-scenes tour of Suntrust Park, then enjoy the sights and sounds outside the park in The Battery. Note that this is not MLB Opening Day, which is March 28th. The Braves open on the road with a three game set in Philadelphia, then come home on April Fool’s Day to kick off their 2019 season at home….but this trip is NO JOKE! We will return to Nashville after the game.
