4 Braves Named All-Stars!

Freddie Freeman National League Majestic 2018 MLB All-Star Game Name & Number T-Shirt RedAtlanta Braves Freddie Freeman has finally received the recognition he so truly deserves from all major league fans!

Freeman not only is one of the best offensive players in the league, he also saves many runs by his defense at first base.

This is Freeman’s third time to be named as an all-star.

He is a born leader by example.  Freeman’s goal is to play every game intending to win.  Never give an at bat away!

Freeman is one of a few players that is not afraid to go the other way to hit to break the shift.

When he is healthy he is the Braves player that teams will pitch around.

Great player but even more a better person, husband and father!

Nick Markakis National League Majestic 2018 MLB All-Star Game Name & Number T-Shirt – RedNick Markakis has finally made a Major League Baseball All-Star Team.

This process has taken 13 years to accomplish.

Markakis leads by his hard work ethic and example of a team player.

He does not speak much but when he does you better listen.

This year has been enjoyable to watch Markakis have one of his best years ever of his career.

Markakis does not smile much but I have seen it a few times when the Braves have walked off with a victory celebration!

To see the fans of the MLB vote for Markakis to start the all-star game is just wonderful.

Ozzie Albies National League Majestic 2018 MLB All-Star Game Name & Number T-Shirt – RedOzzie Albies has been a delight to watch this year.

To see his power and speed brings excitement to this Braves line-up!

Albies has played in only 145 games as a major league league player.

As of writing this post he has 18 HR and 50 extra base hits.

Quite a feat for a 5-8, 165 pound 21 year old 2B from Curacao!

This Atlanta Braves 2B will be a delight to watch for many years to come.

And as a Braves fan I hope many championships too!

The Atlanta Braves Pitcher Mike Foltynewicz has shown a lot of maturity this year.

He has been able to control his emotions on the mound when in previous years he could not finish the inning.

I believe a lot of that has to do with the birth of his child.

This 27 year old has had a great first half.

He has an ERA of 2.37 and has a total of 114 strikeouts at the time this post was written.

Congratulations to Folty and his family!

According to Mark Bowman:

 

The 89th Midsummer Classic, at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., will be televised nationally by FOX Sports; in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS; and worldwide by partners in more than 180 countries.

 

FOX Deportes will provide Spanish-language coverage in the United States, while ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage of the All-Star Game.

 

MLB Network, MLB.com and SiriusXM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Week coverage.

 

Atlanta Braves NewsAs a longtime Atlanta Braves fan I would like to congratulate Freddie Freeman, Nick Markakis, Ozzie Albies and Mike Foltynewicz on being selecting as All-Stars this year! 

 

I know it must be a great honor to be selected. 

 

Also, I would like to congratulate your families with this honor too! 

 

Many times we only get to know the players but we all know the players families have to sacrifice a lot of time away from their husband, boyfriend, father and son!

About Bob Griggs

I became an Atlanta Braves Fan in the spring of 1974. I was in first grade and Hank Aaron was chasing Babe Ruth for the all-time home run king. Back in 1974 things were different than they are now. You could not just watch every game on television. Because of the event the networks would interrupt programming and show Hank Aaron batting until he broke the home run record. Since then I have always been an Atlanta Braves Fan.
