Atlanta Braves discuss the Marlins new ballpark after sweep.
MIAMI–After completing a sweep of the Marlins, the Atlanta Braves took the timeyesterday to discuss how they felt about playing in the Marlins “interesting” new ballpark.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez assessed the colorful site.
“It’s a fair ballpark. You’ve got to hit it to get it out, and it’s a lot better than playing in some of the other places where if you bump it forward, you’re holding your breath. I like it. It’s fair. See how it plays in a couple of years. If it’s really unfair, like Citi Field [was], you make an adjustment.”
RF Jason Heyward grinned when asked about it. “No, I don’t mind it. It’s new, it’s not the old one. We’re playing pretty well here so far, winning three games in a row, so….”
When asked if he too liked the new ballpark 2BDan Uggla showed love. “Turns out we do. [Laughs.] We did this trip.”
The Braves had everything to smile about having now into more-or-less a three-way tie with the Nationals and the Mets for first place atop the NL East.
