The 2016 Atlanta Braves Back to School Bash will be the last at Turner Field before the team moves to the new Cobb County stadium. The Sunday, July 31st game against the Philadelphia Phillies features an array of fun for your family before the first pitch, as well as a back to school supply drive. Below you’ll find everything you need to know thanks to my partnership as a Braves Blogger.
