Battery Power TV: Era of Austin secure as Braves lock up Riley to 10-year deal

Third baseman signs largest contract in franchise history, with maximum value of $232M over 11 years

The Braves locked up another piece of their core, signing Austin Riley to a 10-year, $212 million deal with an option year at $20 million.
