This is the story of the oldest continuously operating professional sports franchise in America.
It's the story of the Braves and their ancestors - Red Stockings, Beeneters, Doves, Rustlers and Bees - and their wanderings from Boston to Milwaukee and Atlanta
The franchise began in the 1870s as the Boston Red Stockings and is now known as the Atlanta Braves.
The Atlanta Braves are the only one of 30 Major League franchises to have fielded a team every season that professional baseball has existed.
Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuna Jr., and Ozzie Albies, Marcell Ozuna was the most popular Atlanta Braves player in 2021
On January 20, 1871, the Boston Red Stockings were inducted by Ivor Whitney Adams with $15,000
Two months later, the Red Stockings became one of nine charter members of the National Association of Professional Baseball Players.
After 82 years in Boston, no one expected the Boston Braves to move to Milwaukee, home of the Braves' top minor-league ally.
Braves owner Lou Perrini had promised to help Milwaukee attract a Major League team and most thought it would be the struggling St. Louis Browns.
Declining fan support caused the Braves to relocate from Boston, forcing them to move from Milwaukee to Atlanta.
