ATLANTA - An 82-year-old Atlanta Braves fan is determined to visit every ball park the team plays in across the country. She made it her birthday wish when she turned 80 several years ago.
This summer, Beverly L'Archevesque will round out her list of baseball stadiums.
"We've done the West and the Central Division, and this year's the East Coast," L'Archevesque told Good Day Atlanta's Ron Gant.
L'Archevesque became a true fan when she moved to town in 1991 as the Braves stride to championships and titles was underway with unforgettable energy.
"We didn't know what hit us when we came down here because everyone was caught up in the fever of the Braves," she said.
Her birthday quest has earned a few surprises this year, thanks to the Phillies who learned of her journey and have asked her to do something special during her visit to their field in June.
"I am throwing out the first pitch," L'Archevesque said.
Although L'Archevesque and her husband aren't season ticket holders, they made it to Braves games regularly and have tickets for opening day at the new SunTrust Park.
