ATLANTA – Bally Sports South will move its broadcast location to the right field stands in front of the Coors Light Chop House at Truist Park for a second installment of “Baseball from the Bleachers” in 2022, televising of the Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves game on Thursday, September 1 at 7:20 p.m. ET.
Play-by-play announcer, Chip Caray, and analyst, Jeff Francoeur will be back among the fans to call the game and will be joined by a special guest, who will be announced on August 30. Nick Green will join them as a reporter on the telecast throughout the game. Caray and Francoeur greeted fans at the gate and signed autographs for fans throughout the first “Baseball from the Bleachers” game this season on Friday, May 27, a 6-4 Braves victory over the Marlins.
The network first called a game from the stands in 2019 when the broadcast team moved to the Chop House location for two games in May and August. The previous game broadcasts have featured notable guests such as Chipper Jones, Mike Soroka and Tyler Matzek and created memorable moments such as Francoeur playing catch with Braves right fielders between innings.
Calling the game from right field provided fans in the ballpark with an up-close vantage point of the telecast, while viewers at home were able to see the game from a different perspective. Varying camera angles showed the announcers’ viewpoint and fan reactions from the stands.
Braves coverage on September 1 will begin with the Braves LIVE pregame show at 6:30 p.m. ET on Bally Sports South, BallySports.com and the Bally Sports app. The show will feature Treavor Scales as host along with Peter Moylan and Gordon Beckham as analysts.
