Fans welcome SAL Champion Rome Braves home to State Mutual

The 2016 South Atlantic League Champion Rome Braves arrived home from Lakewood, New Jersey to Floyd County just before midnight Saturday to a sizable crowd of cheering fans.

The team, complete with police escort, pulled up to State Mutual Stadium late Saturday night to fans who had been steadily gathering for close to two hours to get a look at the SAL trophy that rode shotgun for most of the 850 mile trip home.

Players, coaches, and front office staff addressed the crowd from the back of a car hauler, then mingled with fans, friends, and family members.  Fans got to mingle with players, get photos and autographs, and pass around the SAL trophy.
