On the Beat with Dan Uggla of the Atlanta Braves

Dan Uggla is the second baseman for the Atlanta Braves and a three time All-Star.  When Uggla stopped signing autographs to head to the field for batting practice, I intercepted him for a quick chat.
I love the part of this interview when Uggla removes his cap and appears to be really thinking.  Our interviews may be short, but we do seem to hit upon topics a bit off the norm for the player.  I think this is one of the reasons why we get so many and are welcomed at so many MLB parks.
I would have liked to talk longer to Uggla, but sometimes you get what you can and you move on.  He answered our questions, but obviously needed to get to the field.  I just appreciate his time and cooperation as is.
Thanks again to the St. Louis Cardinals organization for allowing us on the field.  The entire organization was extremely kind to us.
