More than 60 former Braves players and executives, including five National Baseball Hall of Famers, will participate in Alumni Weekend Aug. 16-18 at SunTrust Park.

Hall of Famers Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Phil Niekro, John Schuerholz and John Smoltz are expected to join other Braves legends during a red carpet event on the field prior to Friday’s game against the Dodgers. Saturday’s schedule includes the softball home run derby featuring teams headed by former players Brian Jordan and Jeff Francoeur.

Several members of the 1995 World Series champions, including Ryan Klesko, Steve Avery, Alejandro Pena and Javy Lopez, are expected to participate in the player Q&A and photo session on the field prior to Sunday’s 1:20 p.m. first pitch.
