Braves Set American Flag on Fire At their Home Opener

As a scheduled part of their home opener, the Atlanta Braves set off fireworks before their game against the New York Mets on Tuesday. As an unscheduled part of their home opener, the fireworks set fire to the American flag that flies above the Braves Vision video screen in center field.
“It happened because of new pyrotechnics,” Braves spokesperson Beth Marshall said. “For the first time, they put pyrotechnics on Braves Vision. One of the pyrotechnics flew at the flag and lit it on fire.” Marshall added that the material of the flag is flame retardant, so it went out on its own.
