What was said about the incident by Atlanta Braves OF Ronal Acua Jr.?

According to the article published by Bleacher Report, Atlanta Braves OF Ronal Acua Jr. admitted to reporters after the game that he was initially “a little scared” when the suspects approached him, but he was unharmed.

“I believe that the fans were present and requesting photos. Security was able to arrive at the scene, and everything turned out fine. “We’re all OK and I hope they’re OK,” he said. “I really couldn’t say anything because at that point, they were already there and we were already kind of tangled up.

Even though Braves manager Brian Snitker claimed he was in the restroom when the incident occurred, he said you never want to see that kind of incident.

It’s a scary situation because you never know what people will do once they are outside, according to Snitker.

“No way is it appropriate for people to leave the stands, much less to put their hands on someone else,” said outfielder Kevin Pillar.
