The Atlanta Braves' "Beat the Freeze" promotion needs to make its way to stadiums across the country.

Just before the seventh inning of Friday night's game against the Mets, one lucky fan has the chance to race "The Freeze", which is someone in an all-white costume. The fan is given about a 200-foot head start before The Freeze takes off.

This is another example of why you should always run hard through the finish line.
