Bryce Harper was not in the Washington Nationals‘ starting lineup Sunday, less than 24 hours after admitted feeling “pretty lost” at the plate.

Harper, who has just three hits in his first 21 at-bats this season, will be replaced by Kevin Frandsen in left field Sunday against the Atlanta Braves.

The Nationals beat the Braves 2-1 to avoid a three-game sweep.

Harper went 0-for-4 in Saturday’s 6-2 loss to Atlanta and has no RBIs in Washington’s first five games this season.

“I’m pretty lost right now actually,” Harper said after Saturday’s game. “I’m trying everything right now so we’ll see where I’m at tomorrow, give pops a call and see what he says.”



Promotional nights, special activities abound for 2014 Atlanta Braves season

This season’s promotional schedule provides plenty of special activities for fans coming to watch the Braves from Birmingham.

The Braves (4-2 on the short season) have their home opener Tuesday, April 8, against the New York Mets.

The opener will be highlighted by a pregame ceremony honoring Hank Aaron and the 40th anniversary of his 715th home run which broke Babe Ruth‘s long-standing record. Aaron and other special guests will be in attendance, and the first 45,000 fans will receive a free Hank Aaron commemorative poster.

Regular promotional events throughout the season include Friday Nights Fireworks, Kids Run the Bases games, free bobblehead giveaways (including current and former Braves), military recognitions, free concerts (including Kool and the Gang and Austin Mahone), SEC night and special celebrations for holidays like Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and the Fourth of July.

SE Connect Gears Up for their 10th Season Representing the Atlanta Braves

There was excitement around the SE Connect office this past month as we confirmed that we would be representing the Atlanta Braves for the 10th straight year! As one of our most valued clients, working with this team has been a thrill for our executives and we’re pleased to be able to provide them professional representation again this year.

To gear up for the upcoming season, our leadership recently met with Braves’ VP of ticket sales, Paul Adams, as well as director of ticket sales, Richard Thornton. The meeting between their promotional team and our branding executives was a chance for the leaders to go over plans for this year’s strategy and to finalize the details of the campaign roll-out.

In addition to laying out the plans for this coming year, several members of our team were able to tour Turner Stadium to get a hands-on feel for the game and inspiration for how best to represent the client. With this kind of training, they will be able to provide a greater level of expertise as they communicate with the public.

2014 is going to be another exciting year working with this exciting team! We’re looking forward to exceeding their expectations yet again by expanding their market reach further than ever before.
