Your visit to Trustmark Park puts you near prospects who have worn, and might one day wear, the uniform of the Atlanta Braves. As the AA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, Mississippi, has featured on its roster past and current major leaguers such as Ronald Acuña Jr., Mike Minor, Sean Newcomb and Mike Soroka. Acuña hit 41 home runs in his 2019 campaign with Atlanta after 26 in his first season in the big leagues. Mike Soroka, who pitched for Mississippi in 2017, has amassed a 15-5 record in his first two seasons for Atlanta and made the 2019 National League All-Star Team. Mississippi Braves games have allowed major league players to rehab from injuries, as was the case for Chipper Jones in August 2006 and Tom Glavine in August 2008. Mississippi won the Southern League title in 2008 and clinched additional Southern League playoff spots in 2007 and 2013. Great Mississippi Braves action and perhaps future Atlanta Braves stars await you. Get your Mississippi Braves tickets at StubHub.
