The Atlanta Braves are opening the 2014 Major League Baseball season on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers are also unveiling a new sod at Miller Park despite the harsh winter and polar vortexes.
“This was a little harsher winter than we had anticipated. We’re hoping for a little better spring,” said Michael Boettcher, the team’s director of grounds, via ESPN. “But regardless of what Mother Nature gave us here, we’re going to have it ready for Opening Day.”
The Braves are sending Julio Teheran (14-8, 3.20 ERA) to the mound against the Brewer’s ace Yovani Gallardo (12-10, 4.18).
