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.
4. From another angle, we can see the flag was not fully engulfed in flames.
7. However, another photo uploaded last night showed signs of damage to the flag.
8. The flag is being replaced today.
