The team kicked off the season with a loss Thursday in Philly. Now they're back at home and hosting the Chicago Cubs.

And this season, there's something new on the menu.

It's called the Blooper Burger, and it's what happens when the Braves mascot got into the kitchen during the offseason to create his very own masterpiece.


On this new delicious creation, there's a big toasted bun, four cheeseburger patties, a foot long hot dog, chicken tenders, tater tots, and jalapenos. There's also a little popcorn on the side in case you're still hungry.

"It's kind of a carousel of flavors, you never know what you're going to get," Operations Manager George Raub told FOX 5's Natalie Fultz.

The Blooper Burger is probably the most tasty addition to SunTrust Park, but that's not all that the Braves are doing to make this year's fan experience the best.


The team will also be wearing red jerseys on Fridays, and they're hoping fans will too.

"On Friday nights we're gonna be wearing our red jerseys – it's a refresh of the red jerseys we previously had," Braves President and CEO Brian Shiller said.

Shiller said the ballpark is also going to give out a free special filter for your phone's light, so that the Tomahawk Chop will be really interesting.

On Sundays, the KidZone area will also be free for kids.

Monday nights's opener is sold out, the 28th sold-out game at SunTrust Park. Officials are suggesting you either prepay for the remaining limited parking spots or take a ride-share.
