| Inside Freddie Freeman's very emotional return to Atlanta|
Braves history dates back to the 1870s, and yet only five players have accumulated more home runs, RBIs and extra-base hits than Freeman. He slashed .294/.380/.505, amassed 226 home runs and averaged 147 games in his first 10 full seasons from 2011 to 2019, a stretch that spanned two contention windows and a prolonged rebuild. But his greatest triumphs occurred over the past two years, when he won an MVP after the COVID-shortened season in 2020 and when he led the Braves to an improbable late-season run to the championship in 2021. Last year, Freeman batted .332/.407/.520 during the regular season's second half, then .304/.420/.625 during the ensuing playoffs!
