Before you read on, please note that the Atlanta Braves are not a terrorist organization and they did not intentionally light the American flag on fire last night. I mean, just look at the picture above, the Braves clearly love America.

The wind at Turner field was blowing out towards the giant Braves logo in center field. The logo that serves as the backdrop for all stadium fireworks. I don’t recall this ever happening before (although it may have) so this is likely just a freak accident. Here is a different photo of the Braves sign and American flag on a less windy night:
There has been no word on whether or not the Braves organization will take more precautions when setting off their fireworks or possibly move their stadium flag that will surely need to be replaced.
