The Atlanta Braves may need some rescuing by the end of this season, but at least there will be one promotional game on the calendar that can take some of the sting away from a bad season.
On May 28, the first 20,000 fans into the park will receive a “Chipper rescues Freddie” ATV bobblehead re-creating a moment from the January 2014 winter storm that left countless people stranded around Atlanta. One of those stranded was first baseman Freddie Freeman, who was rescued by past Brave and future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones.
It was a tale seen by many on Twitter and one apparently memorable and odd enough to get fans back to the park.
