This Freddie Freeman Braves Tribute on the Night He Returns to Atlanta Will Bring You to Tears

Fuck.

I think it took me until now to get emotional about Freddie leaving. Obviously everything played out the way it did and I think the Braves and Freddie will both be fine going forward, but seeing him step into the batter's box at Truist Park in a Dodgers uniform is going to be painful.

I'm so glad his last game as a Brave was the clinching game of the World Series. His last at-bat was a home run. He did what he set out to do in Atlanta.

It's game on after Freddie's first at-bat tonight, but I hope the crowd makes that first one special. He deserves the biggest ovation anyone has ever received in that ballpark.
