Williams added that having the game in November when the Braves’ season will be over will make transitioning the field easier.
We don’t have to make any modifications other than taking the pitcher’s mound out and home plate out, he said via the Atlanta Business Chronicle. November of 2018 is a lot easier to do that than during the season. Our vision for that day is not to just play a game. We’re going to create a festive weekend, celebrate the two schools, give back to this community again and utilize our facility to really expand beyond the game and create a great opportunity for their fans, our fans and the people of Cobb County.
MLB Network will televise the draft on Monday beginning with a preview show at 6 p.m. ET, followed by the draft itself at 7 p.m., with coverage simulcast online through MLB.com.
The Minnesota Twins lost 103 games in 2016 and own the first pick of the draft for the third time in their history and the first time since 2001 when they selected catcher Joe Mauer.
The Houston Astros have four picks on Monday, half of which came as punishment for the St. Louis Cardinals hacking into their database. Houston has its own picks in the first two rounds No. 15 and No. 53 plus two picks forfeited by the Cardinals No. 56 and No. 75 overall.
Syndergaard himself sits on a stool underneath a huge mural that says THE ORDER OF CHOLULA, and a triangle that looks like the Illuminati symbol. His long blonde hair is pulled into an impressively neat man bun, his light blue button-down is immaculately pressed, and the suede of his desert boots is spotless. His expression is that of an eighth-grader bored in the back of a math class.
A buffet of breakfast burritos, chicken and waffles, and bowls of an egg, meat, and avocado mixture sit on a side table. They’re flanked by bottles of you guessed it Cholula.
