Adairsville, GA (April 5, 2024) – 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 Arizona Diamondbacks on April 5th, for their Home Opening Day at Truist Park, Atlanta, GA.

“Our partnership with the Atlanta Braves underscores our commitment to supporting excellence in sports and community engagement,” said Yanmar America President, Jeff Albright. “We're proud to provide top-of-the-line equipment that helps maintain the field at Truist Park, ensuring an exceptional experience for players and fans alike.”

Yanmar is the exclusive tractor brand for the Atlanta Braves. Yanmar services and maintains these tractors on an annual basis to ensure they are the top of their game for field maintenance. These tractors were specially customized with extended rear hitches to facilitate the transportation of batting practice equipment and field supplies. Additionally, two SA223s were outfitted with push-blocks and straps, enabling the smooth deployment and retrieval of the protective tarp covering the infield.

Yanmar’s YT347, affectionately known as "the beast," was equipped with ultra-wide turf tires and custom wheels to operate the aerator, enhancing turf quality by allowing fertilizer application.

Yanmar’s advanced SA and YT tractors will be the Braves’ tractors for ground management.
