Training camp has arrived for the Falcons here in Flowery Branch with the first practice this morning beginning a two-week lead-up to the first preseason game. The Falcons come in with 88 players on the roster following Wednesday’s retirement of Charles Godfrey and the signing of former UGA Tight End Arthur Lynch.
A big night by Freddie Freeman paced the Braves to a 9-7 win at Minnesota Wednesday night. Freeman had five RB including a homer. Tonight the Braves host the Phillies with Matt Wisler facing Aaron Nola.
Meanwhile, the Braves made a trade Wednesday sending Lucas Harrell and Dario Alvarez to Texas. Coming to Atlanta is Winder native Travis Demeritte who had 25 homers in Single A ball this year.
