They forgot to mention "stand in long lines to get autographs." Seriously! I went last year and enjoyed the Q&A sessions with Braves players on the fan plaza, but I didn't even think about trying to get in line for an autograph. The lines at 2pm stretched halfway around the back of the stadium - probably an hour's wait or more. You can check out the (poorly lit) pictures here at my old blog.
