The Rome Braves have announced their promotional schedule for the 2022 season. The promotional schedule is jammed into the 66-game home schedule, including three bobblehead giveaways, five postgame firework shows, three jersey auctions, and nine giveaway nights.
Opening Week in Rome is going to be a blast with the first postgame fireworks show of the season on Saturday, April 16. Regardless of ongoing negotiations and game cancellations in MLB, Opening Night will happen indefinitely Tuesday, April 12 against the Hudson Valley Renegades with a Magnet Schedule Giveaway presented by RJ Young for all fans in attendance. April 13 you will have a chance to get your photo made with the Commissioner’s Trophy with the Braves World Champions Trophy Tour presented by Truist.

April 30 will feature our first bobblehead giveaway of the season. The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a bobblehead of everyone’s favorite mascot, Roman, presented by AGC Pediatrics. The remaining two bobbleheads will be announced at a later date and are presented by Giggity’s Sports Bar & Grill (June 24) and Louisiana Hot Sauce (July 9).

Faith Night was such a big hit last season that we decided to bring it back twice for 2022. The first Faith Night is May 15 presented Crosspoint City Church. The other will occur August 21. Each Faith Night will feature a post-game concert.
June 4 will welcome Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond Night. This night will include an appearance by Marvel’s Thor and a Jersey Auction themed to Marvel’s Thor. All proceeds from the jersey auction will benefit the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

We are hosting a Senior Brunch for a June 22 day-game. Gates will open early for seniors to enjoy a bountiful brunch before the 1:00pm first pitch time. Both senior citizens and upcoming academic seniors will be able to take advantage of brunch.
Beach Night is set to return as well. Last season was a tropical paradise at the stadium with island-themed specials all night in the concessions and Three Rivers Restaurant. We look to build further on that this season, alongside the annual jersey auction with proceeds benefitting the Atlanta Braves Foundation.
The ZOOperstars! are back in Roe on June 2. Another appearance slated in the promotional schedule is a Braves Alumni Appearance on July 7. Who will be appearing on that date is still to be determined.
