Atlanta Braves launch Walter Banks Collection

The collection pays homage to the Braves most beloved staffer

The Atlanta Braves are proud to announce the launch of the Walter Banks Collection beginning today. Available at the Braves Clubhouse Store located at SunTrust Park near the Right Field Gate, the collection will feature an exclusive t-shirt designed by Walter Banks himself. A portion of the proceeds from the t-shirt will be given to Banks.
 
"Walter means the world to our organization and we love that he will be sharing his favorite things with our fans," said Derek Schiller, Braves President and CEO. "We also hope that we have a sea of fans wearing a t-shirt with Walter's image on it showing their love for our cherished friend."
 
In addition to the t-shirts, the rotating collection will feature "Walter's Picks," which are a handpicked selection of Banks' favorite Braves apparel and accessories.
 
Banks, an Atlanta native, is the Braves longest-serving game day employee. This year marks his 53rd season with the Braves at his third ballpark. He made his debut in 1965 at Atlanta Stadium and later, moved with the team when Turner Field opened in 1997. Through his time with the organization, Banks has become a living legend for Braves' baseball fans.
 
In 2017, The Walter Banks Hospitality Award was named in his honor for his unwavering service, dedication, selflessness and hospitality to the Atlanta Braves organization and fans.
