The Braves won 16-5 and everyone got a good look at Jason Heyward who hit a 3 run homerun his first major league at bat. Yes, my family was among the crowd chanting “Let’s go Hey-ward” before he even got up to the plate to bat

  8. Hi Susan,
    I love baseball, and what a great day at the ballpark. Fun to see Hank Aaron and nice that they won. You are right, he looks fantastic. I can almost smell the grass from here. There's nothing like the smell of grass on the baseball field.
    Happy Outdoor Wednesday and thanks for hosting.

  9. I am not a baseball fan. I get impatient with them taking so much time to act. I love football as it moves faster. That is a wonderful way to spend family quality time.
