Freddie Freeman’s son, Charlie, was busy doing the Braves chop while cheering on Atlanta and Ronald Acuna Jr. against the Mets.
You can take Freddie Freeman out of Atlanta, but you can’t take the Atlanta out of Charlie Freeman, his son.
The son of the former Braves first baseman showed his baseball allegiances haven’t changed on Sunday while watching Atlanta complete the sweep over the Mets.
Here is Charlie performing the Braves chop with a telling caption: “Mommy I want the Braves to win because Ronald Acuna Jr. is one of my favorite players.”
Freddie Freeman’s son Charlie still roots for the Braves
Charlie and Braves fans back at Truist Park got to enjoy quite a Sunday as Atlanta beat their NL East rivals 5-3.
While Dansby Swanson put his team off on the right foot with a first-inning home run, the Mets responded with three runs to take a lead in the third.
Atlanta was not put off. They found two more runs in the bottom of the third and added further to their lead with a Matt Olson hone run in the sixth.
The victory was Atlanta’s 100th of the season. It’s the first time since 2003 they’ve hit a triple-digit win total. The win also put them two games ahead of the Mets in the division. They are now in control of the race with a road series against the Marlins to come. They can clinch with their next win or New York’s next loss.
Freeman’s Dodgers have already clinched the NL West. They could meet in the playoffs but both sides would have to make it through their NLDS opposition first in order to face off in the NLCS. Then it’ll get interesting for Charlie and the loyalties of the Freeman family.
