The city of Atlanta showed up and showed out yesterday, lining the parade route hours before it was set to begin. It was a memorable day filled with celebrations and concerts, but no one will remember it more than Tyler Matzek.
Later in the afternoon, a video surfaced of the Braves reliever nearly getting arrested after being mistaken for a random fan running in the middle of the parade.
