The Braves to retire Brook Jacoby's number

5 Comments

Well, he did have it first.

The team is being gracious enough, however, to include Tom Glavine in the ceremony this August 6th.  Glavine will also be inducted into the Braves’ Hall of Fame. Jacoby’s induction is apparently being delayed by politics and the usual kind of B.S. that tends to accompany these things.

In his honor, Glavine will almost certainly be called on to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, it will almost certainly be a foot into the lefthand batter’s box, and it will be almost certainly be called a strike.
