Aug. 12 a day rich in Braves history
There was the Smoltz trade, referenced in the previous post, and this:
All hell broke loose at Fulco between the Braves and Padres.
Greg Maddux walked Steve Finley after going 72.1 innings without allowing a free pass.
On the night the Braves effectively ended Carlos Zambrano’s Cubs career, we learned that Ernie Johnson Sr. died.
Thanks to Chris Jaffe at Hardball Times for the tip.
