Several schools from APS were in the audience at The New Schools at Carver as players from the Atlanta Braves players fielded questions about life in the Major Leagues. Pitchers Peter Moylan and Scott Linebrink were joined by center fielder Jordan Schafer, with WXIA/11Alive sports anchor Sam Crenshaw serving as moderator. (Crenshaw is a familiar face around APS, previously serving as keynote speaker at the 2009 Monk Jones Lecture Series.)
APS was selected as one of the sites for the annual “Braves Caravan.” Students asked questions such as the difference between playing and baseball in high school and the Major Leagues. The players also stressed the importance of being professional and consistent with everything they do.
