Today the Atlanta Braves begin the first of two straight series at Turner Field against the New York Mets and Washington Nationals respectively. When they play the Mets tonight it will be the Brave Home Opener and coincidentally enough it will be the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s record breaking 715th career home run which they plan to honor before the game. The now 80 Aaron will be in attendance for this historic ceremony and the Braves will be wearing patches on their jersey all season long to commemorate the anniversary.
When the pregame ceremonies end and it comes time play ball today the Braves will look to Aaron Harang to outduel the 40 year old Bartolo Colon of the Mets. Braves tickets for this game are averaging $62 having fallen by 38% since last week. The other two games in the series are currently going for $32 on Wednesday and $55 on Thursday to make the three game series average $49.67 it roughly 30% below the Braves home average for the season of $70.
After they finish their series with the Mets the Braves will have no down time as the next day they will be right back on the diamond to face fellow NL East opponent the Washington Nationals. While the series average for Braves vs Nationals is higher than that of the Mets it is still over 6% below their home average clocking it at $65.33. Braves tickets prices for when they play the Nats, which begins Friday, all hover within $10 of the series average which reads $64, $76 and $56 respectively but all three games have extremely low Get-in rates. The Get-in prices for these three games are just $11, $13 and $7 for the series finale on Sunday. While there is always a chance that tickets sell out, you won’t have to worry about paying a fortune to see the Braves play at home over the next week.
