Favorite ballpark to play in? Freeman, the southern California native, said Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Teheran went with Marlins Park in Miami.
One kid asked if they ever get nervous.
Teheran: “Every time. It’s part of the game. The passion that I feel for this game, and whenever I take the first pitch everything is gone.”
Freeman: “The only time I got nervous was (my debut when) I didn’t think I’d actually make it out on the field without throwing up.”
A child asked what it’s like being on the disabled list. Freeman, who has been there since there since mid-May with a wrist injury, said: “Not very fun; it’s been the longest three weeks of my life.”
One questions turned a surprising response. When asked why his cast was green, Freeman said it was the favorite color of his mother, who passed away when he was 10 years old.
“It’s helping me deal.”
Check out the other responses during this 20-minute Facebook Live the Braves posted.
Later that night as part of Kids Week, the Braves had 14-year-old Luke Terry throw out the first pitch.
Terry lost his right arm at 19 months old due to complications with E. coli. He gained some attention online after a video of him throwing a runner out went viral.
He spoke to Braves broadcaster Paul Byrd after the pitch about his love of baseball.
Terry, whose position is catcher, is slated to try out for his high school team back home in Tennessee.
