Braves vs Future Braves
I know y'all don't really read my text, so this is going to be an image-heavy post with stories in the captions. ;) The game seemed to be a huge success -- it was a packed house even during batting practice and in spite of the rain and the lightning storm that ended the game, it was a wonderful time! (I can hear you asking now, "When does Lauren ever have a bad time at a Braves game?" haha)
My new wallpaper. That Meds is always in the middle of something fun, isn't he?
fielding during BP
I really did choke on my gum when I saw Kimmie socks up when we walked in the stadium. Cracks me up. :D
ball boy Beachy
Livan (far right) doesn't look as big/unhealthy as he does on TV.
Please tell me Kimmie wasn't acting out what I thought he was, haha! And I'm very happy to have seen no dip cans (I doubt anyone quit, but I don't want to see it.)
JC seems popular. Everyone around him is always smiling!
Mac heads straight for the bench coach and hangs out with him
Beachy signing a ball for gray-haired guy in the outfield; Kimmie ran the ball back to him
Eddie pitching to Marteeeen
not a center fielder
This baby was SO cute.
1. Haha EO. 2. That's JV behind Mac. I never really noticed how scrunchy Mac's face is compared to a normal face.
I want to do yoga with Meds! JC can just stand there like a boss.
HAHAHAHA FREDDIE WHAT IS THIS
Catherine: "TONGUE!" (Also, that looks like David Justice with the baby...)

Catherine: "Oh, that's hot."
I like it when the boys hang out on the step / rail.
Uggla's intro - check out Marteen
Thank you, Jane. Of course I love this. ❤
Is he being Peeta or Miss America? Either way, can't go wrong with waving at fans. ;)
Mike Minor was the starter and pitched well
M-Braves starter Sean Gilmartin made exactly one bad pitch all night - and Uggla made it fly into the bullpen
Prado at bat
Catching prospect Christian Bethancourt (@ChristianBeth27)
A foul ball flew into the dugout - Ske recreates the moment
Livan was dealing!
Cristhian ended up with the W tonight
And Meds was incredible, as you'd imagine
My camera battery died while Meds was warming up, and I barely got it to turn back on for this pic of EO.
This was the final result. The lightning was running rampant and the rain was coming down too hard to continue.
The big boy Braves won 4-3, and EO got the save in what turned out to be the final inning of the game. I didn't get a picture of him, but J.R. Graham from Lynchburg was totally Kimbreling before he threw and I swear I saw Kimmie laughing out in the bullpen. Good times. :D
