Wow! What a great day in Atlanta. Where do we start?
The Braves hosted a special Q&A session for some of our season ticket holders hosted by Braves radio announcer Jim Powell. Some great questions were asked (umpires, state of the team for 2010, etc.) while the folks chowed down on some classic food.
The rest of the crew stayed back and signed autographs for the season ticket holders.
The next stopped was spectacular! The entire caravan crew plus approximately 25 members of the Braves front office made their way to Decatur, GA to help out the folks at MedShare International. MedShare takes donations of medical supplies that are headed for landfills and turns around and sends the supplies to countries all over the world who are in dire need for the supplies.
The caravan then made it’s way to Publix on Sandy Plains Road in Marietta. The turnout was nothing short of AMAZING! Wow – thank you to everyone who braved the cold to get an autograph. The fellas were there for two hours and that still wasn’t enough time to get to all the people who came out to support us.
When the players boarded the bus to head back to Turner Field, Peter Moylan and David Ross saw a young fan crying outside the bus. Seeing her upset they asked if we could bring her aboard. It seems she was upset she didn’t get to go through the line for autographs. Well, she had her own personal autograph session with everyone on the bus and as she got off, the crowd cheered!
An incredible day! Now off to McDonough and Macon tomorrow. We’re visiting Jason Heyward’s former high school, a children’s hospital and the Academy Sports and Outdoors in Macon. Hope to see you there!
