Alan Butts joined the Braves in 1992. He is in uniform for all pre-game workouts and during the game he assists bullpen coach Marty Reed and the pitchers in the bullpen.
A native of Atlanta, Butts attended North Clayton High School and Valdosta State University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in public relations-speech communications.
At Valdosta State, Butts played under legendary coach Tommy Thomas, the winningest baseball coach in Division II history.
A highlight of Butts' career came in 2000, when he served on Bobby Cox's All-Star Game coaching staff and pitched in the Home Run Derby competition.
He and his wife Tammy reside in Newnan, Ga., with their children Colby, Ansley and Avery.
Alan, 53, enjoys golfing in his spare time.
His nephew, right-handed pitcher Brett Cammons, was drafted by Atlanta in 2007 out of Auburn University
