Atlanta Braves holding Chop Fest, ‘rain or shine'; here's the full schedule

The Braves’ annual Chop Fest fan event is still scheduled for Saturday at SunTrust Park. A team representative said Friday that the event will take place “rain or shine.”

Many of the events are scheduled for indoors, and the spokesman said the field will remain open “even in the rain.”

The Chop Fest is scheduled for 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at the park and The Battery Atlanta. Activities include baseball clinics, autograph sessions, photo opportunities with players, interactive attractions, live entertainment and Q&A sessions. 

There is no charge for admission to the event, but there will be charges for some of the autograph sessions, and the Braves said the money from those will go to the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

Though these are all subject to change, confirmed player appearances include Ronald Acuna, Ozzie Albies, Kolby Allard, Jesse Biddle, Johan Camargo, Shane Carle, Charlie Culberson, Grant Dayton, Adam Duvall, Tyler Flowers, Freddie Freeman, Sam Freeman, Max Fried, Kevin Gausman, Ender Inciarte, Luke Jackson, A.J. Minter, Sean Newcomb, Darren O’Day, Wes Parsons, Austin Riley, Chad Sobotka, Mike Soroka, Dansby Swanson, Julio Teheran, Touki Toussaint, Jonny Venters, Arodys Vizcaíno, Jacob Webb, Patrick Weigel, Bryse Wilson, Dan Winkler and Kyle Wright. Confirmed appearances by Braves leadership include Braves legends Bobby Cox and John Schuerholz, manager Brian Snitker and coaches Jose Castro, Sal Fasano, Marty Reed, Kevin Seitzer, Ron Washington, Walt Weiss and Eric Young Sr. 

The day begins with a Leadoff Chop Rally at the Plaza at 10 a.m. and will include a “uniform showcase” in which “subtle uniforms updates” for the 2019 season will be unveiled.
