something like a war

The history of my family. The history of baseball. The lessons we have learned and those we should.

Chipper gets a Standing Ovation in his first at-bat.

Awesome by the Cardinals and their fans. Classy. Thanks for that, from all Braves fans.

The Atlanta Braves Opening Day Countdown is at 31 days. 31 is also the number of Braves legend Greg Maddux.

My all-time favorite Brave

It’s 41 days until opening day. 41 is the number for Braves legend Eddie Mathews.

It’s 44 days until opening day. 44 is also the number of Braves legend Hank Aaron. Hammering Hank Aaron is the true home run king.

as a Dogfish Head-loving Braves fan, I back this entire “catalog”

oldtimefamilybaseball:

I’m a simple man, there is not much required to bring me joy. If there is a ballgame on TV and a beer in my hand, I’m pretty happy. As long as I also have Beluga caviar and I’m wearing my silk smoking jacket. But I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
Like Captain Planet, all of those interests came together in this image pairing beers with their appropriate ballclub. So while I may quibble with some of the choices (Negro Modelo instead of Stone IPA for the Padres being chief among them), I remain committed to the image. Click through to view the whole thing with all 30 teams. 
Which does remind me, someone should really make an infographic with which microbrew cannot be missed at each stadium. I would pay with a collection of rubies unlike the world has ever seen for that guide.
