Our first stop today was at Wild Wings in Columbia, SC. A huge crowd came out to ask questions and get some good food.
The Q&A was conducted by Braves radio broadcaster Jim Powell. Participants were alumni Paul Assenmacher and Zane Smith and #2 Braves prospect Freddie Freeman.
Good stories about why players love Bobby so much, and how Freddie is progressing through the Braves system. Freddie spoke highly of his teammate and best friend, Jason Heyward and said he can live up to the hype.
Fantastic questions were asked by the knowledgable fans, prizes were handed out as were autographs from all the participants.
Will you be joing the Caravan on any of the stops???
What a great way to start the 2010 Braves Country Caravan with a visit to Fort Benning, Georgia. We had an incredible time with the men and women of the Wounded Warriors Batallion and Operation Homefront. And the Braves fans in Montgomery and Auburn – what a reception you gave us too! Kris Medlen, Freddie Freeman, and Chino Cadahia have a message for everyone we met today.
Thank you again for making the first day of the Braves Country Caravan such a success!
