Braves’ spring training really makes for an affordable trip

Baseball fans, you have an amazing opportunity this month in Orlando, Fla. March 2 marks the beginning of the Atlanta Braves’ spring training, and through March 31, Braves fans will have a chance to see their favorite team during their pre-season games.
For an inexpensive weekend full of baseball, peanuts, and crackerjacks, you will root, root, root, for the home team. The gate prices can accommodate any size of wallet; general admission ranges from $18 to $42. If you’ve got a lot of sports fans for friends, for a group of 10 or more, special rates apply, and ticket prices range from $15 to 39. You can also purchase a season pass, which ranges from $20 to 25.
Champion Stadium, located in Kissimmee just south of Orlando, will host the Braves for their training. The stadium has 9,500 seats, four luxury boxes and several open-air suits and patios.
If you need a place to stay, there are several hotels nearby where you can relax after a long day of baseball and fun in the sun. The Ramada Gateway starts at $39 per night and the Continental Plaza Hotel starts at $40. Both are a stone’s throw from the stadium.
The drive is long (about 3 hours 45 minutes), but with the prices divided among several people, a trip to Champion Stadium makes a good spring break option for sports fans. If you spend one night and attend one game with a lower-level seat ticket, plus $40 for round-trip gas costs, with two friends, that’s a grand total (not including food and souvenirs, of course) of about $40 each. Hardly expensive as far as spring break plans go.
