ATLANTA -

Fans planning on attending Chipper Jones' uniform number retirement ceremony at Turner Field on Friday are encouraged to prepare for a huge turnout. If you're headed to the game, there are a few things the Braves want you to know!

Parking passes for Friday night's game have sold out and will be accessible by permit only for those who have pre-purchased tickets. The parking lots will be open at 3:00 p.m., and fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid getting stuck in traffic.

If you have not purchased a parking ticket, don't fret!  There are other ways to get to the game. The MARTA Braves bus shuttle will be on-hand to ferry fans to Turner Field. The shuttle starts running 90 minutes prior to first pitch, and fans can catch it at the Underground Atlanta/Five Points MARTA station.  It'll bring fans back to the same location from Turner Field until one hour after the final out.

For fans who may want to arrive at the ballpark before the MARTA Braves shuttle begins its game operation, MARTA recommends catching any one of three other available bus routes. You can take the #32, #49, and #55 bus lines from the Five Points MARTA station to points adjacent to Turner Field.

Seats for Friday night's game are very limited.  Fans without seats can purchase standing-room only tickets for $25 each. Turner Field ticket kiosks will open at 6:30 a.m. and the ticket windows will open at 9:30 a.m. Friday morning.  You can also Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.  A few reserved seats can also be purchased at braves.com.

Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. for the special pregame ceremonies.  Chipper Jones' number retirement ceremonies will begin promptly at 7 p.m.
