In part of the video, the players say: “On this #404Day, we want to bring Atlanta together for a bigger purpose. Let’s take care of each other. Let’s have each other’s back. Let’s be a team. You be my teammate, I’ll be yours.
“We’re facing a serious threat. But this city has conquered bigger challenges before. Better days are ahead. Let’s do what it takes. To be together again soon. Even if that means staying apart for now. Let’s do it. For Atlanta.”
Martinez even took part while standing on crutches. He is recovering from knee surgery.
The Braves would have played their home opener Friday night but their season has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The Hawks and Atlanta United have had their seasons suspended while the Dream's season has also been delayed.
