Adorable Kid Hugs His Dad For Catching A Foul Ball

Here we have a brief moment from this afternoon's Padres-Braves game and, god damn, is it ever the cutest. Dad and son take in an afternoon ballgame when all of sudden, a foul ball comes their way. Triumphant dad displays the ball he has just snagged, his son echoes that triumph for exactly one second, and then hugs… » 7/28/14 7:45pm 7/28/14 7:45pm

Dan Uggla Refuses To Go Quietly, Signs Minor League Deal With Giants

Dan Uggla's back, baby! Four days after being released by the Atlanta Braves, and just more than a week after being suspended (reportedly for showing up to a game at Wrigley Field just an hour before first pitch), Uggla is getting a minor league deal with the Giants, a well-known corpse repository/baseball team in San… » 7/21/14 5:35pm 7/21/14 5:35pm

Braves Suspend Dan Uggla For One Game, Reportedly For Tardiness

Braves second baseman Dan Uggla hasn't been a lineup regular since May, and with his .241 OBP, that makes sense. Tommy La Stella's taken his spot and hasn't provided any reason to give it back.

Cubs Fan Catches Braves Home Run Ball, Throws Fake Ball Back On Field

I Can't Stop Watching This Agonized Mets Fan's Performative Suffering

After Juan Lagares popped out in foul territory with two men on against the Braves, this guy just couldn't handle the Mets' inability to score. The team was 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position in a 3-1 loss Thursday night, with nine runners left on base, and the man in the front row was fed up. We have likely all… » 7/11/14 9:50am 7/11/14 9:50am

Opponents Barred From Speaking As Cobb County Approves Braves Stadium

This is the point where you just tip your cap to the Braves, and acknowledge that they won. Even at a time when politicians and taxpayers are getting wary about publicly funding stadiums, the Braves just walked away with nearly $400 million from Cobb County, Ga., for a new ballpark, and did so without the nasty… » 5/28/14 8:56am 5/28/14 8:56am

Here's What The Braves' New Ballpark Could Look Like

Forget for a second how much money taxpayers will pay for the Braves' new Cobb County stadium, and how those taxpayers had no say in funding the ballpark, and how the Braves are abandoning a perfectly good 20-year-old stadium to the wrecking ball, and how parking will be a nightmare, and how the team's white flight » 5/14/14 11:52am 5/14/14 11:52am
