Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos wasn’t in Houston on Tuesday night to watch the team he built win the World Series. He was at home in Atlanta with his wife and children. He’d tested positive for COVID on Saturday.
“I was trying not to let this get out,” Anthopoulos said in a late-night Zoom session with Atlanta reporters. “I didn’t want anybody knowing.”
What was it like, watching from home? “Like a New Year’s Eve, though even better,” he said.
