Sorry I've been so slow to put this up; Suzanna's story below of her trip to the Rock Hill, SC caravan stop is a fun one. Thanks for sharing!

Hey, Lauren! Here’s my experience from the Braves Caravan in Rock Hill on Wednesday. I was only able to get a few pics, but I have where they’re supposed to go marked by the captions in italics. Sorry it’s a bit long, but a lot happened. :)
A couple friends and I had been planning on going to the Caravan stop in either Charlotte or Rock Hill pretty much ever since the Braves announced that they would be at both places on the 30th. It turned out that because of schedules the one in Rock Hill was the one we could make it to, even though it was a bit longer of a trip. Then they announced who was supposed to be there, and I was so excited about getting to meet Marteen! So you can guess how crushed I was when he was traded. We decided that unless the Braves got someone w

AROUND THE WEB
As the Atlanta Braves open their spring training for the 2013 season in Florida, the hopeful team is happy to finally have a fully healthy first baseman back this year. Freddie Freeman suffered a serious bruise to his left index finger in the middle of last season after being struck by a Jose Reyes throw while he was sliding. He battled with the injury for the remainder of the season...
Just stumbled upon this gem on YouTube. Can't wait for the season to start!!
Chipper Jones was a fixture at the past 19 Braves spring trainings
Chipper Jones has arrived at the Braves complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and will participate in tomorrow’s afternoon workout session. Jones has been a fixture at the Braves last 19 spring camps, so having him around the practices will add a sense of normalcy.
Jones isn’t the first former player to visit...
Has Fredi Gonzalez changed his approach this season?
Atlanta Braves manager, Fredi Gonzalez, sent out a message to a couple players this week. Gonzalez was miffed that utility infielder Tyler Pastornicky, and outfielder Jordan Schafer, were not at spring camp early.
Both Pastornicky, and Schafer, live in Florida, so Gonzalez couldn’t understand why they hadn’t arrived in camp...
I took a look yesterday at qualifying starting pitchers using PitchF/X pitch values to find the top ten and bottom ten values using repertoire as criteria. In other words, if you put together the value of all their pitches, which pitcher had the deadliest set of pitches. Kershaw came out on top with Verlander a close second. Nova came in dead last among the 85 qualifiers with Ricky...
MCann enters 2013 in the last year of his contract
Braves catcher Brian McCann will face major challenges this season, and he will be facing them with a surgically repaired right shoulder that most likely won’t be 100% until the 2013 season is well underway.
McCann didn’t have a “Brian McCann” type season at the plate in 2012, when he hit only .230, with 20 homers, 67 runs...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Here's a postcard to commemorate Day 3 of FOXSportsSouth.com's embedded coverage from Braves camp, easily the weekend's coldest day (temps in the upper 40slow 50s):
Seven Workout Observations
1. On a separate field outside Champion Stadium, with a stiff crosswind heading out to right-center field, Jason Heyward quickly found his groove, spraying...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. To ring in FOXSportsSouth.com's first day of embedded Braves coverage at the Walt Disney World sports complex, here's an all-encompassing postcard from Day 2 of full-squad workouts:
Four Workout Observations
1. The infield practice portion was an exercise in casual precision. At some point during drill work, the shortstops fielded five consecutive...
