Flaherty Leading Braves In Hitting [VIDEO]
The Atlanta Braves uniform seems to be fitting Maine's Ryan Flaherty nicely. The former Deering HS standout had four hits and scored four runs yesterday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Flaherty is hitting .538 (7-for-13) with 3 doubles, 5 runs scored and one RBI in the first three Braves games.
Flaherty, who is the son of University of Southern Maine baseball coach Ed Flaherty, spent six years as a utility player for the Baltimore Orioles. He spent much of the spring with the Phillies but opted out during the final week of camp to join Atlanta.
He has been starting at third base for the Braves who are off to a 2-1 start and begin a series vs Washington tonight.
