Upton enjoying Final Vote experience, club's support

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 03:48:50 EDT

As they wore #VoteJUP T-shirts during batting practice before Wednesday night's game against the Mets, the Braves showed their support for Justin Upton's bid to win the National League portion of this year's MLB.com Final Vote Sponsored by Experian.

Rough seventh, lack of offensive punch sink Braves

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 23:23:23 EDT

Ervin Santana spent six innings providing reason to wonder if he truly had regained the promise he showed in April. But as the seventh inning unfolded during Wednesday night's 4-1 loss to the Mets at Citi Field, Santana and his Braves teammates left reason to wonder what this season's second half might have in store.

Aiming to halt slide, Braves turn to Harang at Citi

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 22:25:12 EDT

The last time Aaron Harang took the hill at Citi Field, he flirted with history. The veteran no-hit the Mets in seven strong innings April 18, and on Thursday night he'll look to halt the Braves' four-game slide and deny the Mets a four-game sweep. Bartolo Colon, who has struggled early in his past few starts, will start for New York.

Fredi planning to keep Gattis behind plate

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 18:52:16 EDT

Catcher Evan Gattis seemingly provided a sign of encouragement when he crouched behind the plate to field a few between-innings warmup pitches during Tuesday night's game against the Mets. But Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he still does not expect Gattis to be activated from the disabled list immediately after the All-Star break next week.

Upton remains in third in close NL Final Vote race

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 10:58:00 EDT

If Justin Upton is going to gain his third All-Star Game experience this season, he will need Braves fans to spend much of the next day focused on showing him love with the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com's Final Vote Sponsored by Experian. When the second balloting updates were released Wednesday morning, Upton remained in third place. Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau leads the National League's five candidates, and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo sits in second place.

Double-A second-base prospect Peraza has big night

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 00:40:12 EDT

Second baseman Jose Peraza, the Braves' No. 3 prospect, had four hits Tuesday and Double-A Mississippi defeated Montgomery, 7-4. Peraza, ranked No. 99 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a stolen base and an RBI. It was the fourth four-hit game of his career and second of the season.

Teheran off his game, chased early in loss to Mets

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 23:42:17 EDT

All-Star Julio Teheran's bubble was burst as he was soundly humbled by the performance he provided in Tuesday night's 8-3 loss to the Mets at Citi Field. Along with watching their ace match the shortest outing of his career, the Braves also saw their offense subdued by yet another starter who would not be described as "top-of-the-rotation caliber."

Heyward recalls beaning after near-miss

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 18:52:10 EDT

Jason Heyward was thinking about removing the face guard that he has worn on his batting helmet since his jaw was fractured by Mets left-hander Jon Niese's fastball last Aug. 21. But he altered his thinking Monday night when he watched Mets southpaw reliever Josh Edgin's 94-mph heater sail over his head as he stood in the same Citi Field batter's box where Niese had hit him.

Fredi still flummoxed over 'neighborhood' call

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 18:15:32 EDT

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez knows he may be fined for saying, "It's one of the worst calls I've ever seen," in reference to the reversal of a disputed challenge of a "neighborhood play" that occurred during the ninth inning of Monday night's 4-3, 11-inning loss to the Mets.

Bryant, Betts highlight First-Half All-Prospect team

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 10:58:47 EDT

MLBPipeline.com has put together a First-Half All-Prospect team, featuring the prospects who performed the best during the first few months of the 2014 season. The list includes Cubs 2013 first-round Draft pick Kris Bryant and a trio of Red Sox, led by Mookie Betts.

Despite injuries, Braves manage success on field

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 10:07:06 EDT

The Atlanta Braves should be toast by now. That they're still atop the National League East speaks volumes about this franchise, not just the manager or the players or the farm system, but the larger thing, the franchise.

Braves grab lead with late rally, but fall to Mets in 11

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 00:46:53 EDT

An eighth-inning rally provided indication the Braves were ready to extend their recent success. But after Luis Avilan surrendered a costly home run in the bottom half of the same inning, the Mets gained the life they needed to claim Monday night's 4-3, 11-inning win at Citi Field.

'Neighborhood play' at center of controversial review

Tue, 8 Jul 2014 00:44:13 EDT

The "neighborhood play," a subject of much discussion earlier this season, came to the fore again at Citi Field on Monday night. While neighborhood plays are no longer reviewable in most circumstances, umpires in the Braves-Mets game ruled that a play in the bottom of the ninth inning was not a neighborhood play, so they reviewed it. Upon review, the original out call on the Mets' Eric Campbell was overturned.

Teheran to attend All-Star Game, likely won't pitch

Mon, 7 Jul 2014 19:19:31 EDT

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez was prepared to alter his rotation had he been informed that Julio Teheran's All-Star selection was dependent on whether he would be available to pitch in the game. But he was glad that he was never forced to make this decision that might have bothered some of his other starting pitchers.

Gattis not expected back right after All-Star break

Mon, 7 Jul 2014 19:19:21 EDT

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez remains hopeful that Evan Gattis will be healthy enough to return to his lineup within the next couple of weeks. But he does not believe his big catcher will be activated from the disabled list immediately after the All-Star break.

Braves crafting campaign to boost J-Up in Final Vote

Mon, 7 Jul 2014 18:23:30 EDT

There was no reason for the Braves to panic when they learned Justin Upton would be a part of this year's Final Vote Sponsored by Experian. Just a year ago, they spearheaded a successful marketing campaign that helped Freddie Freeman garner a record-setting vote total.

J. Upton selected as NL Final Vote candidate

Sun, 6 Jul 2014 23:42:12 EDT

When it appeared Yusiel Puig was the clear favorite to win last year's Final Vote Sponsored by Experian, Braves fans helped Freddie Freeman pull off an upset with a record-setting amount of votes. Atlanta left fielder Justin Upton is hoping to get similar support from this same loyal fan base.

Despite Wood, Braves' winning streak ends at nine

Sun, 6 Jul 2014 17:59:59 EDT

Paul Goldschmidt's two-run home run proved to be enough for Wade Miley, who guided the D-backs to a 3-1 win on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field. The Braves proved unsuccessful in their attempt to manufacture runs much like they had while winning their previous nine games.

Simmons overcomes errors, injury scare in gritty effort

Sat, 5 Jul 2014 21:19:22 EDT

Along with matching a career high by tallying four RBIs in Saturday's 10-4 win over the D-backs, Andrelton Simmons bruised his left ankle, backside and pride. But the confident smile he displayed as he sat at his locker after the game provided the Braves plenty of reassurance.

After shaky start, Braves sail to ninth win in a row

Sat, 5 Jul 2014 20:50:22 EDT

After encountering a three-run hole before they took their first swing, the Braves began chipping away at their early deficit and eventually cruised to a 10-4 win over the D-backs on Saturday at Turner Field for their ninth straight win.

Braves optimistic Gattis will return after All-Star break

Sat, 5 Jul 2014 16:12:07 EDT

The Braves remain hopeful that Evan Gattis will return to their lineup after the All-Star break. But as of Saturday, they were still waiting to see how Gattis reacts to an epidural injection he received.

Braves win eighth straight behind resurgent Santana

Sat, 5 Jul 2014 00:54:12 EDT

The Braves extended their season-best winning streak to eight games with Friday night's 5-2 win over the D-backs. Ervin Santana delivered his most impressive start in more than a month, tossing 7 1/3 strong innings of two-run ball for the win.

B.J. Upton finding steady success in leadoff role

Sat, 5 Jul 2014 00:41:29 EDT

Reunion Weekend - Friday & Saturday - November 6 & 7, 2009 - Friday, September 18, 2009

GOLF-DINNER / PROGRAM LEGENDS-----BASEBALL GAME

Make your plans now to attend the Auburn Baseball Lettermen and Associates Club annual get together.  The last three have been super fellowship and fun. This year the Club salutes the 1963 SEC Championship Team along with the Auburn All-Americans of the 1960's decade.

The golf on Friday will be a shotgun start and will have similar playing rules to last year. Coach Pawlowski and members of his staff will participate in some fashion along with the 2010 senior / junior baseball players by hitting some tee shots and putt on designated holes. This will be a super time to meet the coaches individually including David Mines, Associate AD and new coach Link Jarrett, a Florida State baseball alumnus, who came to Auburn from a successful program at East Carolina. Also, it will be good time to tell the seniors / juniors how much we support them and their efforts in Auburn baseball program.

Saturday morning brings the Reunion Baseball Game. Details are enumerated on the attached Reunion game registration form. We have had some really good games in the past with young and old former players participating and we see no reason to expect anything less this year. Call your teammates and prod them to plan to attend and join in the fun. Commissioner Buz Walsh promises an even more competitive and better game this year with more participants including the older guys playing the early innings and the young studs playing the late innings. Since we are having our activities later this year, we anticipate more of our Major and Minor League players being available to attend all of our functions this year.

Since the year’s events are taking place on a football weekend, we have not attempted to make provisions for rooms to be set aside for participants needing accommodations. Also, you may want to allow extra time for travel to Auburn and getting around campus for the Club’s functions. I have included lodging lists for your consideration. The Athletic Department will attempt to provide assigned parking and transportation to Plainsman Park for the Reunion Game participants on Saturday. Particulars will be forthcoming at a time closer to that week end and you will be notified.
