One of our longest standing partners, Delta Air Lines has allowed us to grow the game of baseball in the city of Atlanta tremendously. From the support received for programs like Junior Braves at the Villages at Carver Family YMCA to projects and events like Hank Aaron Week that often include field refurbishments in areas of great need and baseball showcase events for diverse ballplayers. We are thankful for their continued support!
The Braves are proud to have partners and sponsors who have a desire to help us grow the game through our events and programs. Below is a list of those partners and how they help us accomplish our mission.
An open door. A welcoming smile. A relaxing stay. That's what Hilton provides to millions of hotel guests each year, and we're proud to have them as a preferred hotel partner of Braves Country Youth Tournaments. They take the work out of travel and allow the athletes and coaches to focus on the field.
For every room night booked for the Braves Country Youth Tournaments, Hilton will donate $10 to the Atlanta Braves Foundation. We are thankful to have them as a partner!
A natural relationship for one of baseball's best brands, our partnership with Mizuno is extensive on the youth baseball and softball front. From youth uniforms that support RBI leagues and special events to clinics, camps and tournaments, Mizuno covers it all. At The Battery Atlanta, the Mizuno Experience Center is an experiential retail shop that can get you custom fitted for all the gear you need. Inside of SunTrust Park, the Mizuno Glove Kiosks allow you to "rent" a glove for free in hopes of catching a home run or foul ball. We are thankful for their support!
With Major League Baseball's on field uniforms moving to Nike in 2020, it was only natural for their involvement to trickle down the youth in Braves Country. As a part of our partnership, Nike stepped up to the plate to help us grow our diversity baseball initiatives including the Braves 42 Classic, honoring Jackie Robinson, the Braves 44 Classic, honoring Hank Aaron, and our Los Bravos Day events that includes a youth clinic for young Hispanic and Latino children to learn the game of baseball. Through Nike's partnership, we also were able to refurbish four fields at the Braves Baseball Academy. We are thankful to have them as a partner!
What's better than wings, beer and sports? Taco Mac brings that and a whole lot more to the table. Our partnership with them includes them hosting equipment drives across their 26 restaurants, which allows us to give equipment to undeserved, at-risk programs, both in the U.S. and around the world. On top of that, we award and recognize the top player and coach of the month in Braves Country with their help. Supporting our tournaments, Taco Mac extends offers to youth and coaches to receive discounts to eat during their travels. Thank you, Taco Mac, we are just getting started!
