As a #BravesBlogger, James and I got to tour Turner Field before watching the game last Saturday night. I went to Braves games a lot as a kid, but even I didn’t realize there was so much to do at the stadium these days!
7 Things for Kids to Do at Turner Field
1. Hope & Will’s Dugout – Located in the Grand Entry Plaza, this fun area for kids is sure to beat any boredom before the game. The space features a large playground for kids to exert some energy as well as a few arcade games. There’s even a charging station for parents here!
2. Scout’s Alley – Here, kids can pretend they are in the big leagues with the interactive pitching and batting games. To play, you need to purchase tokens (each token is $2). The Braves Museum & Hall of Fame is also located here.
3. Braves Museum & Hall of Fame – Kids can enjoy the history of the Braves baseball team, all the way back to their roots in Boston (1871-1952) and Milwaukee (1953-65) before coming to Atlanta in 1966. With over 600 Braves artifacts, this is a spot for the entire family to take in. You can also see who’s made it into the Braves Hall of Fame here.
4. Sky Field – Another place for kids to run off some energy! Let them run the bases or enjoy a panoramic view of the beautiful city of Atlanta. It’s also a great spot to catch the game.
5. Batting Practice – A couple hours before the game, children can head down to the field and watch their favorite players in batting practice. When we were there, we also got to see Chipper Jones hanging out with the team. He even signed a few autographs!
6. Kids Club – Being a Kids Club member gives you little ones lots of fun opportunities! As a premium member, your little ones get a passport to collect stickers for each home game they attend, tokens for Scout’s Alley, VIP Batting Practice Experience passes, meet and greet with Homer and the Home Depot Tools, and a drawstring bag with a jersey, wristband and lanyard inside, and more!
7. Watch the Game! Of course, the whole reason to head to Turner Field is to take in a Braves game as a family. Grab your seats before the first pitch and enjoy watching your team go head to head with their opponents in America’s greatest pastime!
