Standing-room-only tickets planned for Braves’ first two home games

The Braves have identified areas in SunTrust Park where they plan to sell standing-room-only tickets for the new ballpark’s first two regular-season games April 14-15.

Braves President of Business Derek Schiller said an undetermined number of standing-room-only tickets for those games– more than 1,000 per game, he said — will go on sale April 10.

SunTrust Park’s 41,000 seats for both games are sold out except in still-available season-ticket packages.

Schiller said most of the standing-room-only tickets will be in an area he described as a “bridge” behind the outfield seats running from the top level of the Chop House restaurant in right field to underneath the center-field video board. The other standing-room tickets space will be behind some seating sections at the top of the main lower bowl, he said.

In addition to the first two regular-season games at the new stadium, Schiller said the Braves anticipate selling standing-room-only tickets for any other games that sell out of seats this season. According to a price list on the Braves’ ticketing website, the standing-room tickets will cost $20.

The Braves will play the San Diego Padres in the first series at SunTrust Park, April 14-16. Seats remain available for April 16, a Sunday afternoon game.

Baseball statistics/analytics website FanGraphs has posted its annual position-by-position power rankings for all 30 MLB teams – an interesting exercise because it measures each team’s personnel against the competition, rather than assessing it in a vacuum. The Braves’ lineup doesn’t score highly in the analysis. FanGraphs ranks...

By his own admission, Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson came into his second big league camp differently than last year, though his approach remains the same. “I don’t think the approach is different, just the circumstances are different,” said Swanson before the Braves faced the Mets on Sunday. “I try to always be the best version...

Braves sign reliever Hernandez; Chapman impresses

Just because spring camp closes down this week doesn’t mean the Braves are winnowing down their bullpen options. They appear, in fact, doing the opposite. The team signed right-handed reliever David Hernandez to a non-roster contract Sunday after San Francisco released him two days ago. Hernandez, 31, was 3-4 with a 3.84 ERA in 70 games for Philadelphia...
