Yanmar’s SA223 tractors support Braves field management at Truist Park.

Adairsville, GA (April 6, 2023) - Yanmar America Corporation is thrilled to announce their continued sponsorship of the Atlanta Braves for the 2023 season. As we look forward to an exciting season home opener for the Braves, let’s take a moment to look at the Yanmar equipment that helped the Braves during the 2022 season and will keep Truist Park in top condition for 2023.

At the start of the 2022 season, Yanmar provided four SA223 tractors for the Braves’ grounds management. These powerful and efficient tractors come standard with Yanmar’s Dual Range HST Transmission and were specially equipped with a longer rear hitch for hauling wagons of batting practice items and field supplies. Two of the SA223s also had push-blocks mounted on the front and 12’ straps attached to the rear, specifically designed to roll out and back up the protective tarp that covers the infield.

Yanmar also delivered a YT347 loader tractor with turf tires to load “top-dressers” with clay to repair and maintain the infield clay surfaces. Another YT347, nicknamed the beast, was also delivered with ultra-wide turf tires and custom-made wheels to run the aerator, which removes plugs of turf and soil from the field to allow fertilizer to be added and improve turf quality.

The beast operates Truist Park’s aerator.

Yanmar is excited to continue supporting the Braves’ grounds management team with our SA and YT3 series compact tractors for the 2023 season. We look forward to a successful partnership and another thrilling season of baseball.
