Richmond Braves win opener

Opening Day: On a splendid sunny afternoon at The Diamond the Richmond Braves came from behind to defeat the visiting Buffalo Bisons and start the 2006 season on a good note: Richmond 5, Buffalo 4.

In the photo above this Bill McCarthy swing of the bat made the difference in the bottom of the eighth inning with the bases loaded. McCarthy, who also got the season's first hit for the R-Braves in the bottom of the second, picked up two runs-batted-in with this timely single to right firld.

And, yes, in the International League it is possible to have "bisons."

Wouldn't it help with what to do about a baseball stadium, if the Braves organization would see that this year's Richmond team is a quality outfit?
