The Georgia Connection

The trip to Atlanta will be a homecoming of sorts for many players on the Red Sox:

J.D. Drew is from Valdosta, Georgia

Jason Varitek went to Georgia Tech and lived in Gwinnett County during the off-season.

Nick Green went to Duluth High School in the Atlanta suburb. (Gwinnett County Public Schools - my former employer in the late 90's)

John Smoltz spent his career in Atlanta before coming to the Red Sox and still lives in Georgia.

Mark Kotsay played for the Atlanta Braves in 2008.
