World Series: Brian Snitker and Braves’ bullpen are one game away

Sports


ATLANTA — Wardrobe wanted a catcher’s mitt. It was the autumn of 1987. A former minor league infielder named Ron Shelton was filming a baseball film at Durham Athletic Park that revolved round a journeyman catcher. Someone rooted across the supervisor’s workplace at DAP, the one that summer time that belonged to Brian Snitker, supervisor of the Durham Bulls, the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. The wardrobe scout hit the jackpot: sitting there for the taking was the catcher’s mitt used for years by Snitker, a former catcher who had used the mitt as Braves bullpen catcher in 1985.
