The Atlanta Braves released their Spring Training schedule Tuesday, and they will end their 2012 exhibition games with a twist.

The Braves' Spring Training games begin March 3 at home against the Detroit Tigers. The Braves will once again play 18 Grapefruit League games at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex, which has been the Braves' Spring Training home since 1998.

However, instead of ending their exhibition schedule at Turner Field with two games against a Major League team, the Braves will instead play at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Ga., against Triple-A Gwinnett.

The move will both showcase Joey Terdoslavich, Christian Bethancourt and other Braves prospects and bring some attention to the Triple-A team in general.

Braves pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to camp on Feb. 19 and stage their first workout the following day. The remainder of the players will report on Feb. 24, one day before the first full-squad workout.

Individual Spring Training game tickets will go on sale on Jan. 7 at 10 a.m. ET on braves.com
