At least one athlete is doing well in SunTrust Park.
Not-real-named Hammer Harrison, a member of the Harlem Globetrotters, came to SunTrust Park to promote the team’s show.
While in town, he also sunk an absolutely epic trick shot at the ballpark.
It appears he underhanded the ball from section 420, which are certifiable nosebleed seats, down to a basketball hoop on top of the Braves’ dugout.
According to his team biography, Hammer Harrison holds the Guinness World Records record for the longest underhand basketball shot, at 84 feet and 8½ inches.
Maybe then he’ll inspire the Braves, which lost 90 games last season.
