Schafer designated for assignment after Deadline

Fri, 1 Aug 2014 15:04:56 EDT

Schafer was designated for assignment on Friday to create a roster spot for Emilio Bonifacio, who was acquired from the Cubs on Thursday afternoon. There is a strong possibility Schafer will be claimed off waivers by another club. If he is not, the Braves will have 10 days to decide whether to trade him, release him or send him to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Teheran drops duel with Dodgers' Kershaw

Fri, 1 Aug 2014 02:31:45 EDT

Julio Teheran's eight-strikeout complete game wasn't enough against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who didn't allow a run until there were two outs in the ninth inning in the Braves' 2-1 loss on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Minor gets call in battle of lefties against Padres

Fri, 1 Aug 2014 02:12:49 EDT

The Padres and Braves remained relatively quiet at Thursday's non-waiver Trade Deadline, so they will still be extra familiar with each team's rosters when the two teams meet for the second time in a week on Friday night at Petco Park with Eric Stults and Mike Minor on the mound.

Braves strike deal less than hour before Deadline

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 22:28:27 EDT

Over the past couple of weeks, the Braves had separate discussions with the Cubs regarding utility man Emilio Bonifacio and left-handed reliever James Russell. But they hadn't discussed putting the two in the same deal until the final hour before the Trade Deadline.

Simmons playing through 'nagging' shoulder

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 22:28:26 EDT

Teheran looks up to, hopes to speak with Big Three

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:11:25 EDT

Weird? Bizarre? Crazy? I'll just say Julio Teheran has a fascinating reaction to his baseball heroes whenever they are near his world, but let's start with a little background. This Braves pitching ace grew up in Cartagena, Colombia, worshiping the Big Three of Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz, the legends of yore for Atlanta.

Wood, Upton shine, but Dodgers escape in extras

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 03:50:10 EDT

After Justin Upton hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Wednesday night, Kemp delivered a walk-off single in the 10th that forced the Braves to deal with a painful 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Wood finds form with eight-K gem vs. Dodgers

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 02:56:56 EDT

Just five days removed from allowing a season-high 12 hits against a rather weak Padres lineup, Braves lefty Alex Wood limited the Dodgers' potent offense to just one run on six hits over seven innings.

Back to keep Heyward out of Dodgers series

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:33:02 EDT

Jason Heyward arrived in Los Angeles hoping that lower back discomfort would not prevent him from missing more than Tuesday's series opener against the Dodgers. But it now looks like Heyward will not return to the Braves' lineup before Friday night's series opener in San Diego.

Braves relive NLDS letdown in return to LA

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 04:06:35 EDT

Though the sting was far less severe, the 8-4 loss the Braves suffered against the Dodgers on Tuesday night certainly conjured up some painful memories of what occurred in Game 4 loss in the National League Division Series last postseason.

Shoulder strain forces reliever Simmons to DL

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:44:00 EDT

The Braves placed rookie reliever Shae Simmons on the disabled list Tuesday with a strained shoulder they believe played a large part in his recent struggles. Manager Fredi Gonzalez thinks the righty can be back to his dominant form in a couple of weeks.

Full Hall: Inductions a stamp of Braves' greatness

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:58:02 EDT

Braves president John Schuerholz admits a major disappointment in his career -- one World Series championship in the Braves' professional record 14 consecutive first-place finishes. But that can't take away from what was one of the great runs in the history of the game.

Santana fans 11 as Braves blank Padres in finale

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:08:56 EDT

On Sunday, Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux were inducted into the Hall of Fame, drawing hordes of Atlanta fans to Cooperstown, along with former players and executives who were part of the '90s Braves.

Conrad fondly recalls time spent with Braves

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:41:44 EDT

One of Brooks Conrad's most memorable days as a Brave was a sunny Thursday afternoon at Turner Field on May 20, 2010, when he became only the second pinch-hitter to hit a walk-off grand slam to overcome a three-run deficit in a 10-9 win against the Reds.

Minor finds form as bats come alive

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 22:30:48 EDT

Peraza, Sims headline updated Braves' Top 20 list

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 21:00:00 EDT

With the passing of the Draft signing deadline, teams have had a recent influx of talent into their farm systems, and with that, MLBPipeline.com has updated the Top 20 Prospects lists of all 30 teams.

Torre's Hall speech: Game 'part of the American soul'

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 20:42:49 EDT

Joe Torre batted sixth on Sunday, delivering his Hall of Fame speech eloquently, if not briefly, to end this year's induction of the grand Class of 2014. Torre spoke about his family and his love of the game, and he detailed each of the six times the Yankees went to the World Series during his 12-year tenure as manager, winning four of them.

Maddux's Hall speech filled with gratitude, humor

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 20:10:07 EDT

While serving as his teammate in Atlanta, Tom Glavine watched Greg Maddux prepare for more than 350 starts, many of which took place in the midst of the pressure-packed postseason. But Glavine said he had never seen Maddux nervous until Sunday afternoon, when they sat in front of approximately 50,000 folks who came to Cooperstown to watch this year's Hall of Fame induction speeches.

Glavine's stubbornness the hallmark to a HOF career

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 20:08:54 EDT

Tom Glavine was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday for a number of reasons -- 305 victories among them. And it was his practice of playing keep away that enabled him to produce a career that was Cooperstown-worthy.

Parental love common thread among Hall inductees

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 19:31:36 EDT

For almost all of us, it starts the same way. Mom or dad give us a bat and a ball, maybe even a glove. They send us out to play and they keep an eye on us to see what happens. You never ever know. That's the best thing about baseball, whether the players are the best in the world or the kids on your block.

Cox's 'great ride' culminates with induction into Hall

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 18:21:41 EDT

Bobby Cox, the great manager of the Atlanta Braves, spent part of his Hall of Fame induction speech on Sunday putting his career in perspective. Sure, he'd love to go down in history as one of the smartest managers who ever lived, but not if it robs him of a chance to be self-deprecating.

Despite great heights, Maddux true to roots

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 18:20:19 EDT

Greg Maddux surprised many when he decided that the hat on his Hall of Fame plaque would not include a team logo. But those folks who simply assumed that he would be inducted as a Brave were ignoring the genuine appreciation and love he has always had for the Cubs and the city of Chicago.

Maddux, Thomas worthy of Hall's inner circle

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EDT

Hall of Famers know who got in on the first ballot and who had to agonize over a long selection process. And within the former group, there's a subset that is truly iconic. In the historic six-man Class of 2014, the Hall's most anticipated since Nolan Ryan, George Brett and Robin Yount went in together in 1999, that's where Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas come in.

Teheran struggles with arm, delivers with bat

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 23:59:22 EDT

Wood tagged as Braves can't cash in vs. Padres

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 00:50:18 EDT

The reeling Braves managed only four hits against San Diego in a 5-2 loss on Friday night at Turner Field, and starter Alex Wood allowed five runs (four earned) on a career-high 12 hits.

Nostalgic Francoeur enjoys return to Atlanta

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 19:55:42 EDT

Jeff Francoeur has played at Turner Field since the Braves traded him to the Mets in July 2009, but this return to his hometown is not as uneasy as previous trips.

Maddux, Glavine exuded greatness early on

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:37:58 EDT

During all of the seasons I watched Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux audition for the Baseball Hall of Fame on a regular basis with the Braves, I never took them for granted.

Braves' sustained excellence a remarkable feat

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:06:34 EDT

When it comes to the Braves' Hall of Fame era, don't even attempt roll call unless you have some time on your hands. Yes, there was only one World Series title. Even Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux would stipulate to that. But the volume of excellence, and the constantly changing cast of characters behind that excellence, is staggering.

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.
