Braves celebrate Fourth with flyover, fireworks

ATLANTA -- The Braves celebrated Independence Day with a day of America-themed activities at Turner Field, highlighted by a postgame fireworks display for the second consecutive day.

Pregame festivities included a pregame flyover by four T-6 Texans, a training plane used in World War II and the 1950s. In keeping with the theme, the Braves were set to honor in the sixth inning a local veteran of World War II and the Korean War.

On the field, the Braves wore special hats for the Fourth of July, featuring a camouflage "A" instead of the traditional white.
