The batter hit the ball completely out of the park for a home run and batted in all the players on base for a Grand Slam. The crowd went wild!
The crowds visiting Home Plate, the home of retired Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Mark Wohlers and his family, which has been open for the last three weeks as the 16th Annual Roswell Woman’s Club Showcase Home Tour, have universally praised the setting, the architecture, and the decor.
You don’t want to miss out. It’s not too late to visit. The house will be open today from 1:00 to 6:00.
