With Freddie Freeman leading a young group toward National League East power in the near future, the 2018 Atlanta Braves schedule kicks off with a pair of tests in the division. Atlanta will host another up-and-coming team in the Philadelphia Phillies for a season-opening three-game series on March 29, followed by the current rulers of the division, the Washington Nationals, on April 2.
On August 18 against the Colorado Rockies, the Braves will honor their newest Hall of Famer, Chipper Jones, with a bobblehead that plays his walk-up song, “Crazy Train”. Then on September 4, they will honor Babe Ruth’s time with the Boston Braves with a bobblehead against the Boston Red Sox. Both giveaways are available to the first 20,000 fans. In interleague play, the Braves will host the Baltimore Orioles (June 22-24), Toronto Blue Jays (July 10-11) and Tampa Bay Rays (August 28-29), with the Red Sox series taking place September 3-5. *Last updated 2/14/18

Braves vs. Mets
Though the rivalry between these two NL East clubs goes back to the 1960s, it only really became heated in the last two decades. With realignment in the early 1990s, these two teams became divisional foes for the first time. By the late 1990s it was clear the Mets and Braves were the class of the division and it led to many contentious battles for supremacy. This has been one of the better matchups in the National League, and both teams are always loaded with star talent.
Braves vs. Cubs
This rivalry is between the two oldest clubs in MLB history. The Braves are first credited with being a major league team all the way back in 1871 and the Cubs came around not too long after in 1874. Both are founding members of the National League and have played over 2000 times since 1901. If you are a fan of history or just love great baseball, this is a rivalry that you don’t want to miss.
