Chilly conditions in Hot-lanta
The weather has certainly been a factor in the first two games of the series at Turner Field. Not that it altered the outcome of either night game, but it was cold and the wind-chill made for some chilly players on the field and caused fans to bundle up in the stands.
Wednesday night, the wind was swirling, especially in the right field area, where many fans were snuggled under blankets.
“It was tough out there,” right fielder Cody Ross said. “Some of the balls felt like they were starting off more towards [center fielder Cameron] Maybin, and they moved toward me. Fortunately, we didn’t have too many tough ones. It was definitely something as outfielders, we were concerned with, and talking about.
“I’ve played in a lot colder. It wasn’t so much the cold, the wind-chill is what was really piercing.”
