Thorman a big hit at old school

The Atlanta Braves first baseman was at Preston Public School yesterday with former teammate Pete Orr to kick off a Winterball program and tell the kids about professional baseball.

Thorman and Orr answered questions in an assembly and participated in a clinic with plastic balls and bats at Thorman's old school.
Thorman told the kids that sometimes you have to recover from setbacks.

"There's a lot of strikeouts for every home run," he said.

...Yeah. ;)

Kidding, love you, Thor. Not as much as my roommate, but still. Here's the full article.

Aside: here are some FAQs from the AJC on the new Gwinnett Braves. Sounds like an affordable option for those who live closeby -- I hope they do well there.
