The Gwinnett Braves' groundhog mascot hopes skies will clear up for the season opener at Coolray Field Thursday.
During last week's cold spell, the Gwinnett Braves' mascot, Chopper, issued a weather guarantee that temperatures on Opening Day would be warm and springlike. The groundhog has updated his forecast and now is calling for rain Thursday, but hopes skies will clear before the 7:05pm first pitch against the Charlotte Knights. According to the Gwinnett Braves' website, if it does rain Thursday but stops before the scheduled game time, the game will go on as planned. If it continues to rain past the start time, there will be a rain delay. Ticket holders will not be left high and dry no matter the weather.

It will be warm and sunny and temperatures will not dip below 50 degrees,” Chopper said in a Gwinnett Braves statement. The mascot claims to be a "distant cousin" of Gen. Beau Lee, …
