The speedy man races fans in between innings at SunTrust Park, while wearing ski goggles and a blue speed suit.
Authentic Womens DaMarcus Beasley Jersey He reached social media stardom after a fan face-planted while racing him on Friday.
The man behind the ski goggles and arctic-blue bodysuit — 26-year-old Nigel Talton of Fort Valley, Ga. — has been a member of the Braves’ grounds crew since 2012 and a track athlete since his junior year at Peach County High School, where he also played football. Talton ran for Iowa Wesleyan, where he broke a 23-year-old record during his freshman year before transferring to Shorter University. The first chance to showcase his running prowess for the Braves organization came during one of the final games at Turner Field last season, in another between-innings contest — usually reserved for fans — called the stolen base challenge.
MLB fans have been warned, race The Freeze at your own risk.

When we would put Jessica in different sports, and sometimes you got a cheaper deal when you signed up two kids, like a two-for-one deal, Nicole says. So when Jessica played soccer, so did Jordon. When Jessica swam with the swim team, guess what — little brother went, too. When she was in gymnastics, guess what — we got a better deal and signed him up, too. Those are sports that can expose you to different things. You can learn.
Thing is, Jessica might actually be the best athlete in the family.
She was the best high school softball player in Kentucky during her career at Ballard — she was the 2012-13 Gatorade Kentucky Player of the Year and was named 2014 Miss Softball by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association, just to name a few awards — and went to the University of Tennessee to play softball. She transferred to Louisville after her freshman year, and now she’s on the Cardinals’ track-and-field team as a javelin thrower.
She’s unbelievable, Jordon says.
