Atlanta Braves Baseball

Decided to go to the Atlanta Braves Baseball Home Opener yesterday and see what the new team looks like. This is Braves Manager Bobby Cox's last season with the Braves and wanted to be a part of that.

Also there are a lot of new young guys on the team this year and wow did they contribute to the big win, 16-5.  We also decided we need to get out some more and haven't been to a Braves game in about 2 years and thought since it's Spring Break and we had nothing better to do it would be something fun and entertaining to do! Other than traffic around the stadium, it was a really good trip. We went and didn't even have tickets, but ended up buying some Standing Room Only tickets and got in and just walked around the terrace level until we found a good spot to stand and watch. We ended up on the 3rd base side with nice people all around, originally picked a spot near some LOUD Cub fans and just had to move! Since the Braves were winning big, a lot of people with kids left early and we ended up being able to sit down right there where we had stood and watched the game, it was under the shade which was good, since it was sunny and hot! Hope those people in the sun brought sunscreen, it was brutal!!
Here is Bobby Cox at the beginning of the game handing the umpires his scorecard/roster

Wow Jason Heyward had a great opening!!  In the first he hit a homerun with 2 runners on base. Wish I had gotten a picture of that, but alas did not. Closing pitcher Billy Wagner did a great job as well!! I did a shot of him.

Great day for an Opening Season Baseball game! It was really hot, but isn't that how it's supposed to be for Baseball?? My nephew was at the game from Florida, but just texted him, didn't get to see him! Hi AJ! We'll make better plans next time.
So until the next time..........Go Braves!!
