Braves caravan visits wounded warriors in Augusta

The Atlanta Braves caravan rolled into Augusta today and visited wounded warriors at the Charlie Norwood VA Hospital.

Freddie Freeman along with Tyler pastronicky and minor leaguer J.R. Graham paid a visit to the Charlie Norwood V.A. The trio, along with Homer, can't forget him, visited a number of wounded warriors and did their best to lift their spirits. Judging from the smiles on everyone's faces, they succeded in that department.

"This is, this is the kind of thing I like, being able to help these guys. They have done so much for us it's nice to be able to put a smile on their face for a little bit." said Tyler Pastronicky

"It's a special time when you can come out and visit the wounded warriors" added Freddie Freeman "You know they gave a lot of sacrafices to be able to have us have some freedom in our country. Anything we can do to give back and put a smile on their faces, it's always special to me."

These guys didn't just do a meet and greet with the troops, the adventurous side came out as they did a little rock climbing on the wall at the hospital. Yes, they had harness and everyone made it down safely.
