Braves welcome 3-millionth fan to Truist Park just hours after clinching playoff spot

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves have officially welcomed their 3-millionth fan.

The lucky fan walked through the gates at Truist Park on Wednesday as the Braves got ready to take on the Washington Nationals.

It is the first time it has happened in a single season for the team since 2000 and the first time ever at Truist Park that the Braves have welcomed 3 million fans during the regular season.


It has only happened six times in the team’s history.

The lucky fan got a bunch of prizes and maybe best of all, the chance to say, “play ball!” to start the game.

On Tuesday night, the Braves clinched their spot in the playoffs for the fifth year in a row.
