Stadium 16: Our Visit to Truist Park

Heather 0

After our 3:00 a.m. arrival at the Champions Run RV Resort Ocala, it was really tough to get up early for the drive to Truist Park in Atlanta. But that’s what we did, battling torrential downpours along the way.

Truist does have bus and RV parking. The MLB ballpark site says that all you need to do is call the office. So, we called and they told us to call back the morning of the game. We did. They had already sold out of RV parking!

Fortunately, we spotted a Days Inn parking lot selling spots for $40 each. The rather skeptical attendant watched us pulled in, and finally agreed to let us take up two spots for $80.

Our Impressions of Truist Park

Truist Park is open-air, so we were relieved that the rain let up by the time we arrived at the game.

Our Seats: Our seats were in the front row of Section 242, in Seats 9 – 11. We were out by the 3rd line foul pole, but the seats were still excellent!

The Food: We took the recommendation of Ryan’s high school teammate, Mathew, and his family and had hamburgers from H + F Burgers. Ryan really wanted to try the Cleanup Burger from the 1871 Grille. It features 4 grilled beef patties, bacon, cheese, hashbrowns, and an egg between buttermilk Belgian waffles. Unfortunately for Ryan, this was a meal for four – and Brad and I weren’t interested!

Non-Alcoholic Beer Review: Truist Park is a Coors Edge field.

The Game Recap: All Runs Scored on Home Runs!

In the bottom of the first, the Braves got us started with a three-run home run by outfielder Marcell Ozuna. In the fourth, Ronald Acuna hit a two-run home run, advancing the Braves to five over the Yankees. With four double plays by the Braves, the Yankees never did make it onto the score board.

The Atlanta Braves beat the New York Yankees 5 to nothing, and their performance added $668 to Home Runs for Housing, supporting Wellspring Family Services!

Up Next:

We drove about 45 minutes north of Atlanta before stopping for the night at the Harvest Moon RV Park. Tomorrow, we’ll be on our way to Cincinnati to watch the Reds at the Great American Ballpark.
