The Atlanta Braves made a major mistake last night.
It looks like from the picture in Mike Conti’s tweet, they set off fireworks after their home opener and the flag was in the way. A spokesperson for the Braves confirmed to the local NBC affiliate that the mishap really did happen during the team’s home opener Tuesday, adding that the flag is made of flame-retardant material so it didn’t burn for too long.

They may want to fix that. Possibly move the flag somewhere else?
