Braves and the coke bottle.

The Atlanta Braves were making up a rain out game with the Chicago Cubs but this entry is not about the Braves or the Cubs, it about the coke bottle in left field. A couple of days before this game (6.22) it was announced the coke bottle would be dismantled and replaced with something else after the Phillies series, July 2. I had to get some photos before the bottle came down. It had fireworks shot out of the bottle when a Brave hit a homer and had stood in LF for 12 seasons..enjoy..
Standing in line to get tickets, I had tickets to the rainout game, who knew..
Sitting behind home plate, Bob Uecker would be proud.
Looking toward left field where the coke bottle stands.

I had no idea -- and honestly, some of those pics should be framed and available in both color and b&w for the local public.
