Bottoms praised the Atlanta Braves during a video on Instagram Tuesday morning. She described the Braves as a “great community partner” and hinted at “great things” coming up with the Atlanta Braves.

Turner told Bottoms that if the Braves win, not only will he wear a Braves hat and jersey, he will also send Blood Bros. barbecue, H-Town Pils by Saint Arnold Brewing and tamale from Irma’s Tex Mex & More.
