It is hard to beat the match-up, at least on paper that we have this fine Tuesday evening as we have two of the league’s best teams in the Braves and Yankees with Touki Toussaint and Jordan Montgomery on the mound respectively. The Braves are coming off a tough loss to the Phillies yesterday which saw Sean Newcomb and Robbie Erlin implode while the Yankees have lost two straight and have cooled off considerably after a torrid start to the season.
The climb up the ladder positioned against a gate outside the Phillies' ballpark nearly 450 yards away from home plate comes with more than a distant view of baseball. It also comes with a major mandate: ''You're in charge of the air horn,'' said Phillies fan Brett MacMinn. Who knew the block party of the summer would be thrown at Phillies games, where baseball's gatekeepers locked out fans but can't silence the die-hards who packed their vuvuzelas, air horns and homemade banners and stirred up the staid atmosphere inside Citizens Bank Park?
The Yankees reportedly reached a $10 million sponsorship deal with the popular social media app this week.
