Alan Butts joined the Braves in 1992. He is in uniform for all pre-game workouts and during the game he assists bullpen coach Eddie Perez and the pitchers in the bullpen.
A native of Atlanta, Butts attended North Clayton High School and Valdosta State University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in public relations-speech communications. At Valdosta State, Butts played under legendary coach Tommy Thomas, the winningest baseball coach in Division II history.
A highlight of Butts' career came in 2000, when he served on Bobby Cox's All-Star Game coaching staff and pitched in the Home Run Derby competition.
He and his wife Tammy reside in Newnan, Ga., with their children Colby, Ansley and Avery. The 52-year-old Butts enjoys golfing in his spare time. His nephew, right-handed pitcher Brett Cammons, was drafted by Atlanta in 2007 out of Auburn University.
