The Braves put up big numbers at the gate, as well as on the scoreboard, over the weekend.
Completing their second homestand since returning to 100% seating capacity at Truist Park, the Braves drew a combined attendance of 117,487 for the final three games of a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Announced attendance, defined by MLB as tickets sold, in the 41,000-seat stadium was 37,545 on Friday night, 40,068 on Saturday afternoon and 39,874 on Sunday afternoon.
The Braves won those three games by a cumulative score of 33-3 after losing the series opener to the Pirates on Thursday before a smaller crowd of 21,430.
The Braves returned to pre-pandemic seating levels May 7 after having no fans in attendance last year and limiting attendance in the first month of this season to initially 33% and then 50% of full capacity.
