PHOTO: Errant firework sets American flag on fire at Braves game
What a way to start a baseball season.
The Braves got shut out 4-0 to the Mets in their home opener on Tuesday, and that wasn’t even close to the worst thing that happened at Turner Field.
New pyrotechnics had been affixed to Braves Vision (the big screen in center field), and an errant firework lit the AMERICAN FLAG ON FIRE during a postgame fireworks show. One fan captured the incredible image and shared it on Facebook.
The Braves are replacing the American flag, and will hopefully get their firework game in order by the next homestand.
