2003 Update: As of the 2003 season, the Macon Braves have moved to Rome, GA and are now called the Rome Braves. They are still in the SAL. I do not know what's become of Luther Williams Field.

Personal Notes: Stadium built in 1929. Very nice field. Most seats are behind the net. I was able to go in before the gates opened and watch the teams practice. That's better than going to the beach! Post cards and hat pins in the souvenir stand. Bathrooms were operational and clean even after the game. Starting line up was posted. Met Jerry and Rose, season ticket holders for the M-Braves. Wonderful company during the game. We've kept touch through the mail since then. I send them articles on the current G-Braves players so they can see who's made it through the system so far. 2014: I have since lost touch with Jerry and Rose.




You can tell from this photo, the structure is definitely an older one.

Most seats are underneath the over hang. I, personally, prefer to sit in the sun. Found seats on the third base side that weren't under cover or behind the net. It worked for me.
