Take a road trip for baseball this spring

ATLANTA – Springtime can mean only one thing: Baseball.

But don’t think that the only game around is the big league one downtown. Take the opportunity this spring to hit the road and see a minor league baseball game – and another part of the state.

Here’s a quick rundown of the minor league baseball teams in Georgia:

  • Augusta GreenJackets, the A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. Augusta is located about two hours east of Atlanta.
  • Gwinnett Braves, the AAA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. Located on the outskirts of Metro Atlanta, the Gwinnett Braves are the newest minor league team in Georgia.
  • Savannah Sand Gnats, the A affiliate of the New York Mets. Just in case one needs another excuse to visit “The Hostess City of the South.”
  • Rome Braves, the A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. Situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Rome is an hour-and-a-half from Atlanta.

Of course, there are a number of other minor league teams in nearby out-of-state cities, including Birmingham, Chattanooga, Jacksonville and Greenville.
