Beat the Freeze: Braves' promotional race off and running

ATLANTA (AP) When Atlanta Braves grounds crewmember Nigel Talton was asked during the offseason if he wanted to race fans as a part of an in-game promotion, he had no idea it was the start of something special.

The Braves in-game promotion - "Beat The Freeze" - has made Talton somewhat of a national celebrity.

Fans are selected before the game to race The Freeze. They receive a head start in the sprint around the outfield wall at SunTrust Field, while Talton -a former college sprinter wearing an electric blue superhero-like outfit - attempts to catch them in a dash to the finish line.
