My First Time – Andruw Jones – August 15, 1996
The Setting – Veteran’s Stadium. Philadelphia, PA.
From Jones – ‘I had to get right in there that first day and face Curt Schilling. He threw me nothing but fastballs, with so much gas on them. It was unbelievable. I struck out twice and popped out. I know I got a hit, but first came the strikeouts.’
The Box Score – Braves 8, Phillies 5. Jones went 1-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI.
