Be sure to read Part 1 a few posts back to get the full story.
Check out that photo from the game. That’s how great our seats were. Section #113 tickets thanks to StubHub.com. I had a small zoom lens on the camera, but we were directly over the Braves dugout. Every inning when they came in from the field, Carter would run down to the railing overlooking the dugout, in hopes of catching a ball.
Aside from our great seats, Turner Field is incredibly nice. Thereâ€™s a great Cartoon Network kids area, a few great restaurants (Bar-B-Q is the best), a kids only merchandise shop, and a Braves museum. The biggest surprise came from the entire staff at Turner Field. They were amazingly friendly.
While walking to our seats, if we passed a concession vendor not waiting on a customer, they would wave as you walked by. Everyone at the ballpark actually made the effort to converse with you. Several times I was asked if I (we) were having a good time or if this was our first game.
The usher to our section offered to answer any question we had. We I asked a question she didnâ€™t know the answer to, she radioed a supervisor and informed me of the answer.
Even the the Braves didnâ€™t win the game, it was a great game nonetheless. The game was full of great plays, close calls and was all-around entertaining.
After the game, we went to the Kids Run the Bases area and Carter got to run the bases on the field (see the photo in the previous Braves post). They even had a photographer on the field and we found Carterâ€™s image online when we returned home and ordered a few photos.
All in all, we had a great time and we definitely plan on returning as soon as our busy schedule allows. We hope to make it in June for Brian McCann bat day, especially now the McCann is back in great form.
