Adairsville, GA (March 30, 2023) – Yanmar America Corporation has announced its continued sponsorship of the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball team. Official Partner of the Atlanta Braves Grounds Crew, Yanmar will support the Braves as they meet the Washington Nationals on March 30th, for Opening Day at Nationals Park, Washington, D.C.

“Baseball overcomes boundaries to bring people together in a shared moment of excitement and passion,” said Jeff Albright, President of Yanmar America Corporation. “Yanmar is extremely proud of this opportunity to partner with the Atlanta Braves and demonstrate our commitment to the sport.”

Throughout 2022, Yanmar provided its SA series and YT3 series multi-purpose compact tractors for ground management at Truist Park. In 2023, the compact and versatile tractors will continue to support the Braves’ grounds management team as they keep the field in pristine condition for hometown fans and visitors.

Yanmar leadership believes there are elements in common between baseball and business activities. Baseball is a team-oriented sport where each and every player has the opportunity to realize their individual excellence with the support of their team. Together, players, managers, and coaches must demonstrate unified leadership and foster team morale.
