There was a lot of magic in the air on Sunday night as the Atlanta Braves scored five runs in the ninth inning to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in the final game of a three-game series. To comeback against super-closer Jonathan Papelbon was magical, for Chipper Jones to hit the game-winning walk-off home run was magical, so it's no surprise then that catching such an important home run was also a magical story.
"When he swung, it was like slow motion," Kelly said. "The ball came to us in a pretty high arc, and I thought, 'Oh, my gosh! We're about to get hit by this ball,'"
Emily, however, forgot about her injured arm -- and the two fingers she broke last year -- and reached up with her bare hands for a clean catch.
"Sure enough, the ball came right into my hands," she said, "and I turned around and started screaming."
It's a great story and worth a full read. Hopefully there will be more magical moments at Turner Field before this year is over.
