The Braves are selling “standing room only” tickets for Sunday’s final game at Turner Field.
The tickets for the 3:10 p.m. game against the Detroit Tigers, priced at $20 apiece, went on sale at mid-morning Monday at www.Braves.com/tickets and the Turner Field ticket windows.
Buyers of the “limited number” of standing-room tickets won’t have a reserved seat but can stand in designated areas within the sold-out stadium, the Braves said.
Pre-game and post-game ceremonies are planned Sunday. Before the game, former Braves players will be on the field to celebrate Turner Field’s history and throw a ceremonial first pitch. After the game, the Braves plan a “ceremonial final pitch, the transfer of home plate to SunTrust Park, a parade of ‘Braves Country’ states and a presentation featuring Braves VIPs.”
The final homestand at 20-year-old Turner Field starts Tuesday night with the opener of a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, followed by a three-game weekend inter-league series against the Tigers. The Braves will open next season in their new Cobb County stadium, SunTrust Park.
