"To get to come out here today is a big honor for me," Aldean said. "It was a lot of fun."
Aldean has been a fan of the Braves dating back to his childhood in Macon, Ga. Over the past few years, he has developed a friendship with Brian McCann and gone hunting with both Tim Hudson and Jones. He was in camp for the filming of Day Jobs, a reality show that will air on Great American Country this fall.
"He's the best celebrity I've seen," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We get a lot of celebrities coming through here to do a lot of this stuff. He's by far, the best I've been around at doing that kind of stuff."
Aldean seemed to be at ease as he picked a few low throws and took batting practice.
"I told them I felt a lot like Willie Mays Hays (from the movie Major League)," Aldean said. "I hit a lot of pop ups. I started to drop down and do some pushups."
