Merchandise Run

Justin Fuller of Loganville, Ga., looks at baseball shirts Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021, in Loganville, the morning after the Atlanta Braves won the World Series. Merchandise tents popped up in locations around Walton County as fans showed their support of the local team's success.

LOGANVILLE, Ga. — As he looked at the T-shirts and more for sale under a tent along the highway, longtime Braves fan Justin Fuller was eager to commemorate his team’s World Series championship.

“I loved it,” Fuller, of Loganville, said Wednesday morning not 12 hours after Atlanta won the decisive sixth game of the Series, beating the Astros 7-0.

“My granddad and uncle are smiling down,” he said “They were big Braves fans.”

Loganville Christian Academy even turned out school for the championship parade Friday as fans celebrated the team’s first title since 1995 — only the second since moving South in 1966.
