The 2008 Southern League champs, the Mississippi Braves
I was just able to squeeze in the ring ceremony for the Mississippi Braves, the 2008 Southern League champs, before I had to get in the rental car and head to the airport.
I wanted to be there, so I arranged the flights so I could take these photos. I’ve photographed these guys many times before, and this was my second Spring Training ring ceremony.
In the first one, several springs ago, I photographed Jeff Francoeur as he received his Rome championship ring. This time, I got Kris Medlen, below.
