The fireworks at the @Braves home opener just burned holes in the American flag. Can we please plan better next time?
1. At last night’s home opener vs the Mets, an errant firework appeared to engulf the American flag in flames.
3. 11 Alive, an Atlanta news station, reports:
Braves Spokesperson Beth Marshall told 11Alive News it happened because of new pyrotechnics. For the first time, they put pyrotechnics on Braves Vision (that’s the large HD screen). One of the pyrotechnics flew at the flag and lit it on fire. Marshall said the material of the flag is flame retardant, so it went out on its own.
