From Day 3 of the Braves Caravan:
When the players boarded the bus to head back to Turner Field, Peter Moylan and David Ross saw a young fan crying outside the bus. Seeing her upset they asked if we could bring her aboard. It seems she was upset she didn't get to go through the line for autographs. Well, she had her own personal autograph session with everyone on the bus and as she got off, the crowd cheered!
I think the lesson here is don't wait in line for an autograph, just turn on the waterworks in front of the bus as the players are leaving. But seriously, that was a nice gesture, and inevitably everyone who want's an autograph will not be able to get one.
Tim Hudson, Jason Heyward, Todd Redmond, David Ross, coach Glenn Hubbard, assistant GM Bruce Manno, broadcaster Jim Powell, and alumni Brad Clontz, will be on today's caravan as it heads down through McDonough to Macon. There will be a public autograph session this afternoon at the Academy Sports on Eisenhower Parkway. All Maconites should plan to attend.
