Bustermania continues in Lee County

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lee County is a little emptier than usual Friday night. A lot of folks from the county are at Turner Field to cheer on a hometown hero.

Friday afternoon, a busload of Buster Posey fans left Leesburg United Methodist Church. They took signs made by fans both big and small. Posey's family attends the church. They plan to sit in a section behind the San Francisco Giants' dugout to cheer for the Braves and their favorite Giant.

"He's a great person, great family, he and my son played ball together so I've seen him play since he was real young and just very proud of him," said Susan Smith, a Posey fan.

Everyone on the bus got a "Braves for Buster" pin to wear at the game. They expect the announcers to mention the group on Friday night's television broadcast.
