Notes and observations from Turner Field on Sunday evening:
- The Braves organist, who is among the more underrated ballpark presences, implicitly nicknamed the Miami shortstop “Adeiny In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.” +1.
- If you haven’t tried the Kevin Rathbun steak sandwich yet, I think you should. It’s $15, but if you just commit to buying one less beer or ice cream or whatever your usual treat is, plus figuring in the dinner entree you aren’t buying now, it’s not really that much more than you were already committed to pay. 200 level, just to the first-base side of home plate. Thank me later.
- Section 406 has the most aggressive usher in the ballpark. I mean that as a compliment, really. I’ve seen this lady around for a few years and she obviously takes a great deal of pride in her work. I respect that. But it’s 406! Come on, who’s trying to sneak around 406 angling for better se – eh, scratch that thought. You got me, 406 Usher. Game recognize game.
- There was a screamer of a foul ball hit down the third-base line that a fan down near field level made a barehand play on. If you are a reader of this blog, sir, let me give you proper internet congratulations. That was a great play.
