The Mississippi Braves will open their 2022 season Friday night at Trustmark Park in Pearl, and the stadium staff was busy getting the field and facility ready during a press event last week.

The M-Braves will begin the season with a three-game series against the Montgomery Biscuits. Friday’s game begins at 6:35 p.m., and the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive a pint glass commemorating the team’s 2021 Double-A South championship.

Saturday is a magnet schedule giveaway, and Sunday is family fun day when children are invited to run the bases after the game.
