Booking Atlanta Braves Player Appearances
Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves are a team in the National League East, based in Atlanta, Georgia and playing home games at Turner Field, sometimes referred to as “The Ted.” The team was established in 1871, originally as the Boston Red Stockings, going through numerous transformations over the decades. In 1876 they became the Boston Red Caps, followed by the Boston Beaneaters, the Boston Doves and the Boston Rustlers, before becoming the Boston Braves for 24 years from 1912 through 1936 when they became the Boston Bees for four years. 1941 saw a return to the name the Boston Braves and in 1953 they began a 12 year stint as the Milwaukee Braves before finally moving to Atlanta.
The team’s early years brought them much success, winning eight pennants in the late 19th century. In 1914, the Braves won their first World Series managed by George Stallings, led by second baseman Johnny Evers and shortstop Rabbit Maranville. Their next National League pennant didn’t come until 1948, and it took 43 years for the team to win another World Series. The Braves’ 1957 team was managed by Fred Haney with starring players that included Series MVP Lew Burdette and right fielder Hank Aaron. Over the next 25 years, the Braves won their division just once, in 1969, and it wasn’t until 1991 that they finally returned to becoming a successful team. Suddenly they became the team to beat, reaching their peak when they captured the World Series in 1995. The team was managed by Bobby Cox and led by players that included pitcher and World Series MVP Tom Glavine, NLCS MVP Mike Devereaux, Gold Glove winner Marquis Grissom and third baseman Chipper Jones who has spent 19 seasons as a member of the Braves since his debut in 1993. Following their World Series win, the Braves won their division every year through 2005. Today, the team is managed by Fredi Gonzales and led by Chipper Jones, pitcher Tim Hudson, right fielder Jason Heyward and catcher Brian McCann.
