Our Time at the Bullpen

Carter getting a close look at one of his favorite pitchers - Jeff Bennett.
Eddie Perez, the bullpen coach, and Jair Jurrjens, a starting pitcher, talk to fans. Eddie turned around after this picture and threw BOTH kids a ball from the bullpen. They were so excited (and I was, too, because I caught Laura Beth's!!) to get a ball!! Then Jair Jurrjens . . . .
signed Laura Beth's ball!!! Carter did not want his ball signed because he wanted to be able to play baseball with it!!!
Then, Buddy Carlyle - who also has a 4 year old son named Carter - signed Laura Beth's ball!!
She was so proud!!
Tuesday afternoon game had us sitting right beside the Braves' bullpen. The kids loved being there. By the end of the game they had 3 balls (2 given by Eddie Perez and 1 given by Jeff Bennett) and 3 autographs. Carter just loved being close to the catchers and pitchers!
