The reigning World Series champion Atlanta Braves have a pretty loyal following in Huntsville, and that following has a rare opportunity this summer to get an up-close look at the Braves’ World Series trophy as it makes a tour around the Southeast.
The trophy is making 151 stops across the Southeast as part of “The World Champions Trophy Tour Presented by Truist,” commemorating 151 years of Braves baseball.
When, where and how to see the World Series trophy
The tour thus far has already made stops in a few Alabama locations, including Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. Five more stops are included in the tour, including two in the Huntsville area:
- June 23: Academy Sports + Outdoors in Madison at 4PM
- June 24: U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville at 10AM (Tickets are required for this stop)
Stops on the tour will include the opportunity for fans to take photos with the trophy, as well as programming by the Braves entertainment teams, alumni appearances and more.
“We felt the tremendous support of Braves Country throughout the season and particularly in the Postseason, and we are taking this Championship on the road to fans across the Southeast so that they can share in the joy and celebration of this historic victory.”Derek Schiller, President & CEO of the Atlanta Braves.
If you miss the trophy stop in Huntsville, you can still see it in other locations
The World Champions Trophy Tour Presented by Truist will travel throughout Braves Country, featuring locations in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina and North Carolina.
If you can’t make either of the stops in Madison County in June, among the 151 stops on the World Series trophy tour are events in Albertville June 25 and Cullman June 26.
“Truist is excited to be part of the World Series Trophy Tour and celebrate the World Champions across Braves Country,” said Joe Smith, head of sports and entertainment marketing at Truist. “It’s been incredible to be part of this historic year with the Atlanta Braves, and we can’t wait to make more great memories with Braves fans during the tour.”
