Matt Olson worked with the Braves on a charity event to support individuals with autism on Friday night. This is one of many charity events that Braves players have been involved in this season. It’s good to know that the Braves Foundation works with these players, as it gets contributions from many players’ salaries. This fits with what Alex Anthopoulos has professed on numerous occasions: character matters in players they seek out. It is not the only thing, to be sure, but by all accounts Anthopoulos has cultivated a really special organizational culture that players want to be a part of, exemplified by their words and their actions, signing long, sometimes team-friendly extensions to stay with the team.
