Atlanta Braves Details
The Braves franchise has existed in one form or another since 1871, and the team was a founding member of the National League in 1876. The franchise originated in Boston and began calling itself the Boston Braves in 1912. The Braves moved to Milwaukee in 1953 and finally to Atlanta, where they still call home, in 1966.
The Braves were one of the most dominant teams in baseball during the 90s and early 2000s. Their all-star pitching was notoriously difficult to play against, and three Braves pitchers (Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and John Smoltz) won six Cy Young awards between 1991 and 1998. Between 1991 and 2005, the Braves won the National League East division title a record 14 consecutive times. In 1995, in their third trip to the World Series since their division-winning streak began, the Braves won their first World Series title since the team moved to Atlanta. The Braves defeated the Cleveland Indians in six games. Future Hall of Famer Tom Glavine recorded two wins, including eight shutout innings in the final game, and was crowned World Series MVP. The Braves made return trips to the World Series in 1996 and 1999 but were defeated both times by the New York Yankees.
SunTrust Park, currently the newest park in baseball, opened in time to become the Braves’ new home for the 2017 season. The Braves defeated the San Diego Padres in the first regular season game hosted at the park. Braves’ center fielder Ender Inciarte recorded a number of milestones during Opening Day 2017: he hit the first home run in the stadium, and also recorded the first out and the first hit. First baseman Freddie Freeman led the team in batting average and home runs. The Braves ultimately finished third in the NL East and did not qualify for the playoffs. In 2018, behind the starpower of Freeman and some young but talented pieces, the team will try to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since the 2013 season.
