No matter what, we couldn’t do it without our Gwinnett Braves. The International League South leading G-Braves have done most of the heavy lifting for us this season, as their impressive peripherals speak volumes. Regardless, we have had a great deal of action here at Coolray Field in the last two months, since the season began on April 3, with the highly anticipated Exhibition Game between the Braves Top Prospects and the Atlanta Braves.

It has been a whirlwind ever since the Braves All-Star Game with so many new and exciting events around every corner. Tim Hudson graced the Gwinnett faithful with his presence twice, as he started in front of a frenzied Coolray Field crowd for two victories. John Smoltz stopped by for his book signing of Starting and Closing and then sat down with me for a lengthy 3-part interview. We have seen five G-Braves make their accession to the next level with the Atlanta Braves or another Major League organization. We witnessed the incredible “Memorial Day Miracle” where the G-Braves scored six runs in their final at-bat to win 9-8 on Memorial Day against Lehigh Valley among other countless memories…

The great part is that the baseball season still has three months left, and then some. With the talent that the G-Braves possess, we could be in for a very exciting finish. Either way, all of us here with the G-Braves couldn’t do it without you, the fans. We appreciate your time and commitment to us, it never goes unnoticed. Thank you again for your support and we are striving to make The G-Blog better with each passing day. Stay tuned all season long for every piece of information on your Gwinnett Braves.
