New Braves’ Manager Rides A Harley

By Bud Wilkinson of

Pitchers and catchers are reporting to spring training camps in Florida and Arizona, which mean spring will be here soon. The Atlanta Braves have a new manager, Fredi Gonzalez, who not only knows baseball but knows motorcycles, too. He rides a 2002 Harley-Davidson Road King. David O’Brien, the beat writer for “The Atlanta Journal-Constitution,” also rides and the two of them recently took a ride that included a stop for coffee and a conversation about bikes and baseball. You can read part one of the interview here. Part two can be found here. The accompanying photo, which shows O’Brien on the left and Gonzalez on the right, was taken by Sara Hanna.
