Every second counts when you’re running the bases toward a good baseball game buzz. And with some new technology, you might get your draft beer faster at SunTrust Park.

The Braves said Monday that the new Draftwell taps installed throughout the ballpark cut down pour times from a 14-second average to five seconds.

Delaware North Sportservice, which manages food and beverage service at SunTrust Park, said the new boozy tech will also keep the beer colder and fresher with more “brewery-intended flavor.”

Target Field in Minneapolis, home of the Twins, installed Draftwell taps and increased its keg yield from 87 to 94 percent, said Delaware North spokesman Marc Heintzman.

Every drop counts.

The Braves wore uniforms resembling the ones worn in the 1970s this weekend. Hank Aaron made the uniform famous when he hit his 715th home run in 1974.
