Braves fans are taking Joc Pederson’s appreciation to the next level

In a tie game, Braves fans still gave a standing ovation to Joc Pederson in his last at-bat for the San Francisco Giants.

For Pederson to receive a standing ovation before the game would be pretty normal for a fan favorite returning to his old haunts.

However, for Atlanta baseball fans to do so in his final AB — a shot that would prove crucial in the Braves’ eventual victory — proves how much Pederson means to his supporters.

Pederson only spent half a season at Atlanta, but he will always be remembered for making opposing teams clutch their pearls during the Braves World Series run. He wore the same beads on Monday night’s return to Truist Park, where he received his World Series ring.

Braves fans respect Joc Pederson

Pederson’s only at-bat was a chance to score, and he made up for that opportunity by recording his first and only hit of the ballgame.

It is unknown if Pederson will get the opportunity to start on his return to ATL. At least he gets cheers every time he shows up. As for wearing the pearls, Pederson made it clear — it wasn’t much of a choice.

“This is the first day I’ve worn them since that run,” says Pederson told reporters in Truist Park. “It just felt right to wear, and I think it fits with the whole story of why I started wearing them, whether it just felt right and I wanted to wear them, and Atlanta embraced them.” and taken to another level. I didn’t really want to wear them again until we got here.”

What Pederson and the Braves did last postseason was special. We’ll see if Atlanta can do that again this season without him and the likes of Freddie Freeman.
