Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Braves vs Phillies
Rival Team: Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies and Braves have both been members of the National League for over a century, but the rivalry between the two didn’t really kick off until the ‘90s. The two teams met in the 1993 NLCS, and in 1994 the Phillies and Braves became NL East rivals. There is plenty of bad blood between the two, so don’t miss it when the Braves and Phils square off.
Braves vs Nationals
Rival Team: Washington Nationals
The Braves and Nationals have been in the same division since 1994, but the rivalry between the two didn’t really take off until recently. From 2012 to 2014 the two teams consistently fought for division titles, and as a result, there is lots of animosity between the two sets of fans. There is always a lot at stake when the Braves and Nationals meet, even if one of them is in the basement.
Braves vs Mets
Rival Team: New York Mets
The rivalry between the Mets and Braves has been going strong since the Braves moved to the NL East in the early 1990s. The two have met in the playoffs several times over the years including the 1969 and 1999 NLCSs. If you want to attend a good matchup, then there are few better than a Mets-Braves game.
