We want to send a huge thank you to Braves fans in Knoxville and Chattanooga who braved some cold and wet weather to come out in huge numbers today to meet Mike Minor, Jo-Jo Reyes, James Parr, Jordan Schafer, Bruce Manno, Dave Brundage, and Otis Nixon, on day 10 of the Braves Caravan.
Our first stop of the day took us to the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital in Knoxville, where we met some really incredible kids and a wonderful staff. Check out this awesome video of the Braves and Homer having fun with one young patient at the hospital.
Next we headed to the Wild Wing Cafe, where a huge crowd of fans filled the entire restaurant… there wasn’t an empty seat in the house. We had a great Q & A with the fans, followed by an autograph signing. One of the best questions of the day went to Otis Nixon, when he was asked to talk about 1991 and his memories of that magical year. Check out some of his respone in the video below:
On the road again, the Braves Caravan headed to Chattanooga, to do an autograph signing at Hamilton Place Mall. We were overwhelmed by the love that Tennessee showed us today! We know your time is valuable, and for you to share some of it with us on this cold, rainy day really meant so much! Thank you again Tennessee!
Tomorrow, the Braves Caravan with Troy Glaus, Matt Diaz, Clint Sammons, Eric O’Flaherty, Frank Wren, and Glenn Hubbard on board, heads to Athens for an autograph signing at Academy Sports + Outdoors on Atlanta Highway from 4:00-5:30. Other stops earlier in the day including a season ticket holder luncheon and a school visit! Check out the entire schedule at braves.com/caravan!
