It’s tough to remember a between-innings promotion that has captured the attention of major-league fans more quickly than The Freeze.

The Atlanta Braves' sprinting superhero first went viral last week when an unfortunate fan who accepted his challenge face-planted in the warning-track dirt at SunTrust Park.

But the tables turned on Friday night when The Freeze tasted defeat. It’s worth noting that the challenger always gets a sizable head start in the race, but here’s the upset:

Fans of The Freeze can exhale, though, because the speedster got back on the winning track on the warning track Saturday:
