The Braves will set up an interactive booth on the lower-level concourse inside Truist Park for fans to read a script and hear their voice through the loudspeakers.

In a release, the Braves said they have received over 135 online submissions from people who want to be the next “Voice of the Braves.”

Here’s the other interesting part for fans: Braves fans will be able to vote for their favorite PA announcer finalists from Feb. 17-20 on the club’s social channels.

The Braves said they will announce their new PA announcer ahead of the 2023 season.

Last summer, Casey Motter, the Braves’ longtime PA announcer, died at age 53.

Saturday’s Braves Fest will run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The event, which is free to attend, will feature player photos, baseball clinics, Q&As, live entertainment, panel discussions with players and coaches, and more.
