The image of the two Braves fans trailing Hank. Imagine this happening today ? Thank god these we’re just ordinary fans who just wanted to celebrate with Hammerin’ Hank…. Oh yeah, check out Bill Russell and Davey Lopes

Outlines of the old Fulton County Stadium infield, May 2007. When I took this pic I had visions of the two fans and Hank. If you should catch a Dodgers/Braves game at Turner Field, or any game, you can catch a glimpse of this historical landmark across the street from the Braves yard. Come early though because this is used as a parking lot for Braves games….
