ATLANTA - Nigel Talton ran track in college and has hopes of sprinting at the Toyko Olympics in a few years.

Dee Gordon says he can take him.

"For sure," the Marlins' speedy second baseman said with a grin. "He's slow."

Talton has become an internet sensation and a fan favorite at the Atlanta Braves' new SunTrust Park by racing different contestants before the third inning starts.

Known as 'The Freeze,' Talton wears ice blue spandex with a pair of oversized ski goggles - an obvious homage to the Frozone character in Disney's 'The Incredibles.'

Braves fan beats 'The Freeze' in race

  Braves fan beats 'The Freeze' in race ​You can say a lot of things about The Freeze, the mythical Atlanta beast who's sweeping the nation.But you can't say he's not humble. And you can't say he doesn't know how to bow down when he's been beat.

Reigning NL batting champion Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins says he unknowingly took the performance-enhancing drugs that led to his 80-game suspension, but he 'll accept the penalty.

He has been defeated before so we know it's possible, but what if he were to take on someone like Dee Gordon ? The Marlins are currently in Gordon 's reaction was predictable, and rather hilarious. "Me, duh," he said to the camera. And he will not let anyone named " The Freeze " beat him , he explained.

The not-so-secret identity of 'The Freeze' is the 26-year-old Talton, whose speed was discovered last season at Turner Field.

Talton, who ran at Iowa Wesleyan, works on the Braves' grounds crew and showed off during a 'stolen base challenge' at Turner Field.

Gordon, like many in baseball, has taken notice of Talton and his alter-ego - and it's hard not to.

Last week, Talton was racing a fan - the race goes from one foul pole to the other along the warning track with a random contestant getting a nice head start - when the contestant got a little cocky coming down the home stretch.

The fan, identified by Atlanta's WXIA-11 as Alex Arrowood, was doing a little celebrating as he closed in on the finish line when Talton blew right by him.

Arrowood ended up stumbling and hitting the dirt, the video going viral and ending up on ESPN.

  Google can turn an ordinary PC into a deep learning machine Time is one of the biggest obstacles to the adoption of deep learning. It can take days to train one of these systems even if you have massive computing power at your disposal -- on more modest hardware, it can take weeks. It's also very flexible: there's a standard, modular interface that lets you use virtually any training model, data set or parameters. You don't need to replace everything just to change one component. And since it's open source, you could easily see the community share its own models to help you get started.

On Friday night during the opening game of the Marlins-Braves weekend series, a speedster was brought out to challenge Talton. This time, the challenger won going away.

On Saturday, a slower contestant came on and 'The Freeze' was back and won easily.

Gordon, considered one of the fastest players in baseball, took notice of the difference in competition.

"They found someone he could definitely beat," Gordon said with a laugh.

As far as Gordon taking on 'The Freeze,' don't bet on it.

First, Marlins manager Don Mattingly doesn't want his leadoff hitter and starting second baseman getting hurt sprinting along the warning track.

"That's a pretty long run," Mattingly said. "I don't think we need Dee to be doing that, don't need him out with a hamstring.

"He definitely would win if you give him that lead, though."

Gordon, who has been estimated at getting up to 21 MPH by MLB.com, does admit that the Braves and Talton have hit on something.
