Bobby Cox threw the first pitch to Fredi Gonzalez before the Braves successful home opener against the Phillies (which also featured Chipper Jones' 2,500th career hit), thereby completing various metaphors and synecdoches about life and sport and manhood.

It was unsettling seeing the skipper sit in the seats and not cuss at anybody, but you mainly just highly approve of the boss taking the mound with jersey tails flying.

No. 8 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets baseball fell to No. 1 Virginia in their relatively hyped series opener, a similar fate to those met by the Hawks at the hands of the Pacers and the Thrashers by those blasted Hurricanes.
