The Atlanta Braves will host their sixth annual Los Bravos Night to celebrate Hispanic and Latino culture and the impact it has had on the Major League Baseball team.
As part of the Los Bravos Night, Latin American flags will be displayed in The Battery Atlanta and the team’s Latin players and coaches will be wearing a flag representing their heritage.
During the pregame, fans will be able to enjoy Latin music performances on the Georgia Power Pavilion Stage. Additionally, the lineups will be announced in Spanish.
“A special Los Bravos Night ticket package, available at www.braves.com/losbravos, will include a game ticket and a one-of-a-kind bobblehead of Ronald Acuña Jr.’s iconic Grand Slam during the 2018 National League Division Series, with the Spanish broadcast call,” reads a statement by the MLB.
The Braves also plan to release new Los Bravos merchandise, including t-shirts, outerwear, and caps that will be available exclusively on Los Bravos Night.
The Atlanta team is also working on a collaboration with local Atlanta Latina designer Lisette Correa to launch a limited-edition Arrrtaddict collection, which is expected to be available later this year.
The event, presented by Georgia Power, will take place on September 16, when the Braves are set to play against the Philadelphia Phillies in Truist Park.
The team will also be wearing their red Los Bravos jerseys during the game, which will later be auctioned off by the Atlanta Braves Foundation from September 15 to October 16. Proceeds will go to the Ser Familia and the Latin America Association.
The Los Bravos Night is planned to take place during Hispanic Heritage Month. In addition to the special one-night event, the Braves plan to release a 2022 Los Bravos Spotify playlist presented by El Jimador and host the fifth annual 50 Most Influential Latinos in Georgia event on September 26.
“The event will honor the achievements of individuals from different categories within government, media, entertainment, sports, nonprofits, and business. The honorees will be recognized in the stands at Truist Park on Los Bravos Night as leaders in our community,” the team announced.
