Braves, Marlins Make Baseball History In Game At Fort Bragg

12SL_MLB_BRAV_COVwebNormally, Atlanta Braves interim manager Brian Snitker would be pretty upset following a 5-2 loss. But this was not a normal game. The Braves had just finished playing at Fort Bragg, a military base in North Carolina. Even though the Miami Marlins came out on top, Snitker and the rest of the Braves had nothing but good memories. Four months ago, there was no site anywhere on Fort Bragg to play a Major League Baseball game. So the league built one. The temporary stadium turned out major league-worthy, holding over 12,500 fans. The one-time event was held as a special tribute to America’s military members over Independence Day weekend. All in attendance were those stationed at Fort Bragg and their friends and family. The stadium will now be transformed into a smaller facility for use on the base.
