Both Pastornicky, and Schafer, live in Florida, so Gonzalez couldn’t understand why they hadn’t arrived in camp...
Another Braves season is right around the corner.
The Atlanta Braves once again have put together a summer schedule filled with fun promotions.
Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton bobblehead nights, Braves alumni weekend, two Fourth of July fireworks celebrations, Military Appreciation Day, and Friday night fireworks are the leading attractions.
Bark in the Park returns two times...
