Braves lose Luis Avilan to leg injury

The reaction was enough for us all to jump to conclusions.  It had to be a tear.  It wasn't a simple strain. It didn't cramp up.  Luis Avilan had to have tore his hamstring.  When he was help off the field, our initial thoughts were solidified.  When he was carted off, our fears were confirmed.  There has not been an official diagnosis yet, but it seems clear that...

While editing the pictures from Saturday afternoon's game, I noticed a few things. 1. Many of them came out well, because of the full sun. 2. I take more pictures when I go to games with Alison. 3.
