Freddie Freeman's New Contract

Freddie Freeman reached an 8 year, $135 million contract extension with the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, a move that keeps the Braves first baseman with the club through 2021, and makes Freeman a very wealthy man . The contract buys out Freeman's three remaining arbitration years as well as five free agent years, keeping him under contract through age 32. The deal is the largest in Atlanta's history.

Last year, Freeman was an all star and in the top 5 in MVP in the national league. He's only 24 years old, and has improved his game each of the past 4 seasons. He got engaged a month ago, and now has $135 million dollars to look forward too. Things appear to be going well for the guy.

I know Freddie, and have since childhood. We met on the 9-10 year old all star team in little league, and we lived about 5 blocks apart. Even when Freddie was a kid we all knew he was better than everyone else. We went on to play at El Modena High School together, and we were really good friends. Since high school I don't see him much anymore. Probably about 2-3 times a year when he comes back to Orange for holidays and whatnot.

Proof we played together
