Oh how I wish I was in Orlando right now.  With the Atlanta Braves Spring Training going on,  it gets me even more excited about baseball.  I love seeing all the pictures and videos of all the young players from the Atlanta Braves Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook feed.  I love the live coverage of batting practice, fielding drills, and warms ups.  I can’t imagine the excitement of the some of the young guys who get to go to Spring Training for the first time.  I can’t imagine the excitement of the experienced guys who are seeing the young talent that is there.  I love how some of our favorite former players are back working with the younger players like Javy Lopez, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Tim Hudson, Dale Murphy and on and on.  Even bringing back those like Fred McGriff, Hank Aaron, Bobby Cox just to advise and scout out the talent that they see.  Good stuff!

Just the other day there was news that our former All-Star outfielder Andruw Jones has been hired as a Special Assistant to Baseball Operations where he will assist Braves outfielders, as well as with international initiatives.

This means that both the Jones boys are back!!

I love that Chipper Jones has been recently hired as a Special Assistant to Baseball Operations to assist in several capacities but will work with young hitters.  Something he’ll be very good at.

These are great moves by the Braves!  This just adds more excitement for what is to come.  Good things are happening as the puzzle pieces are coming together….and I’m pretty sure they are going to surprise everyone this year.

Now it seems there is more optimism surrounding the Braves and I’m so happy to see it.

I am a true fan and know that John Hart and John Coppolella have been working really hard to rebuild the Braves organization, despite a lot of backlash.  I am confident that they know what they are doing.  We just have to trust…

I say, Buckle Up, Braves fans!  It’s going to be an exciting ride!!

The First Spring Training Game is Tuesday, March 1st, with first televised game being March 11th at 1:05.

I Can’t wait.  Go Braves!
