Also: Four players on the first team; four players on the second team; and two players, honorable mention. The honors were decided by the coaches in 7-AA. Here’s a look at the AA playoff brackets as games start this week.

Atlanta Braves to fully open — 100% capacity — on May 7. The team started the season with around 10,000 seats and expanded to double that, or 50% capacity, for the current home stand. The latest:
“With vaccinations across the Southeast increasing and health and safety protocols still in place, the Atlanta Braves are set to resume normal Truist Park seating capacity beginning Friday, May 7 as the team begins their third homestand of the season with a series against the Philadelphia Phillies.”
All modified health and safety measures at Truist Park will remain in place. Measures include wearing a face covering unless actively eating or drinking in your ticketed seat, cashless concessions, mobile ticketing and ordering, and a no bag policy. Enhanced sanitization efforts throughout the ballpark will also continue. Revisions to the seating capacity or other health and safety measures will be subject to continuous review throughout the season. braves.com/tickets.
