WHAT: The Atlanta Braves will host their sixth annual Los Bravos Night presented by Georgia Power on September 16, when the team welcomes the Philadelphia Phillies to Truist Park. The celebration will highlight the impact of the Hispanic and Latino community in Braves Country and beyond.
Latin American flags will be displayed in The Battery Atlanta, and fans are encouraged to arrive early for pregame Latin music and dance performances including the Mexican ballet, Colombian cumbia, plena and salsa on the Georgia Power Pavilion Stage. Latin Braves players and coaches will be recognized on the field pregame, each showcasing a flag representing their heritage while the lineups are announced in Spanish. As part of the pregame ceremony, Santiago Marquez, CEO of the Latin American Association, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and Sirena Grace will sing the Nation Anthem.
A special, sold out, Los Bravos Night ticket package includes a game ticket and a one-of-a-kind bobblehead of Ronald Acuña Jr.’s iconic Grand Slam during the 2018 National League Division Series, with the Spanish broadcast call. The Braves Clubhouse Store will release new Los Bravos merchandise, including caps, t-shirts, outerwear, and in-game mobile ordering items available exclusively on Los Bravos Night.
The team will wear their red Los Bravos jerseys on September 16, which will then be auctioned off by the Atlanta Braves Foundation. The ‘Jerseys Off Our Backs’ online charity auction will run September 15-October 15 at www.braves.com/jerseyauction. Proceeds will benefit Ser Familia and the Latin American Association.
The night will conclude with a Los Bravos themed Friday Night Fireworks presented by the Georgia Lottery. Fans can vote to select the “Jugador del Juego presentado por Truist” (Player of the Game presented by Truist) through a social media poll posted on the Braves and Los Bravos Twitter and Instagram accounts, @Braves and @LosBravos.
