As their offense spent most of the past few weeks appearing to be lifeless, the Braves bid adieu to their hope of defending their division crown.

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:56:34 EDT

Braves fall back in WC race after falling to Nats

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 23:52:59 EDT

Coming off a miserable road trip, the Braves were hoping to gain some momentum courtesy of their latest opportunity to face Stephen Strasburg.

Braves send Gattis for further tests on throat

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:56:55 EDT

Braves recognize need to get offense going

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:31:56 EDT

Key connections: Star-Spangled Banner, baseball forever linked

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 00:00:00 EDT

The celebration of the 200th anniversary of our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," is on, as Francis Scott Key's memory is honored for his poetic description of the "dawn's early light" of Sept. 14, 1814, at the height of the War of 1812. With that in mind, two centuries later, we go around the horn with nine things to know about the song that is now eternally connected to the Grand Old Game.

Teheran takes a hard-luck loss against Rangers

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 17:15:00 EDT

There's a catch: Braves face backstop decision in 2015

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:02:28 EDT

Once Evan Gattis regains the strength he lost while battling strep throat this week, the Braves are going to want his powerful bat in the lineup as frequently as possible until this season concludes. But as they look toward next season with the confidence that Christian Bethancourt is prepared to handle the catching duties on an everyday basis, there is reason to wonder where Gattis will fit.

Harang shows veteran composure in terrific outing

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 22:30:57 EDT

Comeback bid falls short as Braves topped in DC

Tue, 9 Sep 2014 23:47:22 EDT

After spending the past few weeks wallowing through a miserable offensive stretch, the Braves actually proved rather productive at the plate on Tuesday night at Nationals Park.

Fredi unsuccessful on first-inning challenge

Tue, 9 Sep 2014 20:09:47 EDT

Fredi looking to give starting pitchers extra rest

Tue, 9 Sep 2014 18:53:39 EDT

Though the Braves are in the midst of battling for the National League's final playoff spot, manager Fredi Gonzalez is not going to make any rash decisions that could endanger the future of any of his young starting pitchers.

Minor gives major effort, but Braves fall short in DC

Mon, 8 Sep 2014 23:23:52 EDT

As they have spent the past few weeks enduring an ugly offensive stretch that has extended the mediocrity they have produced most of this season, the Braves have nearly killed any hope of successfully defending their division crown. Now, they can only hope that their bats awake in time to avoid a fate that will be more painful than the one Mike Minor experienced during Monday night's 2-1 loss to the Nationals.

Freeman's season-long woes vs. Marlins over

Sun, 7 Sep 2014 18:43:50 EDT

Teheran hits wall as Braves falter in race

Sun, 7 Sep 2014 17:44:30 EDT

Often stoic throughout the early portion of his career, Julio Teheran proved he is just one of the many Braves players who have been pushed to the point where they are no longer able to keep their emotions in check. Teheran's frustration was on display as he was abruptly chased during the sixth inning of Sunday afternoon's 4-0 loss to the Marlins at Marlins Park.

Teheran picks off Yelich after replay review

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.
