Atlanta Braves Spring Training at Walt Disney World

Our family loves Baseball!  One day, we hope to make it to Walt Disney World for  an Atlanta Braves Spring Training baseball game at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports.  This would combine two of our favorite things- Disney AND baseball!  This would make my middle son's trip complete! The only thing that would make it better would be for the Red Sox to train at Walt Disney World!

Spring Training starts next week, on February 26! The Braves will kick off their 17th season of training at WDW against the Tigers.

  9. This would be a great reason to go check out Wide World of Sports. My boys love going back home and watching the minor league players. I imagine this would be a similar feel.
