New for the Braves in 2020 - CoolToday Park

Beginning with the 2020 Spring Training season, the Braves will call the state-of-the-art complex in West Villages/North Port, Florida - their new Spring Training home.

At CoolToday Park, the Atlanta Braves have created a Grapefruit League facility for others to go by in the future. Some of the new features include:

-- A 90-acre training complex

-- A 360-degree concourse with views of surrounding areas and wide concourses allowing for easy access throughout the ballpark.

-- A variety of seating areas. The traditional grandstand theater seating, half-moon four tops extending from foul territory into fair, with drinks rails to the back and a berm space in the left-field corner.

-- The Budweiser Bench is located in left-center field and a suite sits at field level, beneath the wraparound concourse.

-- Two Terrace areas on each end of the grandstand’s second level are ticketed separately and feature access to an air-conditioned space and a full-service bar.

-- The corner Left Field Lounge is a multilayer group area with a dedicated menu and waitstaff.

-- Four group areas sit on the concourse, between the dugouts and between the grandstand seating and the concourse.

-- Drink rails surrounding the entire seating bowl.

CoolToday Park offers plenty of reminders you are at an Atlanta Braves spring-training game. Large murals of Braves greats like Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine wrap the exterior towers, while the team’s retired numbers–#44 (Henry Aaron), #3 (Dale Murphy), #6 (Bobby Cox), #10 (Chipper Jones), #21 (Warren Spahn), #29 (John Smoltz), #31 (Maddux), #35 (Phil Niekro) , #41 (Eddie Mathews), #47 (Glavine) and #42 (Jackie Robinson) are memorialized on the front plaza.

The complex also has seven diamonds (four for major leaguers, three for minor leaguers), 11 batting cages and 63 pitching mounds.
