Atlanta Braves

Atlanta Braves baseball has given the city's fans plenty to cheer about since the franchise moved to Georgia in 1966. Atlanta's Major League Baseball team has captured 16 division titles and five National League pennants. They have posted winning records in 19 of their last 21 seasons, tying them with the New York Yankees for most in baseball during that time.

The Atlanta Braves brought the city its only major professional sports title on October 28, 1995 when Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers combined to one-hit the Cleveland Indians for a 1-0 series-clinching win. The Braves took the series, four games to two, as they silenced a lineup that is still considered one of the greatest in baseball history.
More than 20 years before the World Series title, Atlanta baseball fans witnessed a monumental moment in Major League and Atlanta Braves history. On April 8, 1974 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, Hank Aaron belted a 1-0 pitch from Al Downing over the left field fence for his 715th career homer, surpassing Babe Ruth's 49-year old career home run record.

Today, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium is a memory, but the Atlanta Braves Baseball excitement continues at Turner Field. Atlanta's newest ballpark first hosted a Braves home game in 1997 after its construction for use in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
