Watch: Braves legend Andruw Jones rides a mechanical bull named ‘Druw’

Forty seconds.

That’s about how long Andruw Jones lasted on his namesake mechanical bull in early May.

The former Braves legend was riding a bull as part of the opening of PBR Atlanta, a country bar at The Battery Atlanta — the mixed-use behemoth attached to the new SunTrust Park.

The quirkiest SunTrust Park rules and regulations you don’t know about 

The venue, located at 825 Battery Ave. SE, has named the bull “Druw” after the acrobatic outfielder.

Jones netted 10 consecutive Gold Glove awards and five All-Star selections during his 12 years with the team.

The space — described as “‘cowboy cool’ meets ‘urban chic’” — is open Thursdays through Fridays from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., and stays open an hour later on Saturday.
