Here are stories on the greatest players and coaches to don the Braves uniform. Newly updated to include 2021 World Series coverage and the latest corps of new stars!

Recall the harrowing experience of Atlanta–Fulton County Stadium catching fire on July 21, 1993, overshadowing the debut of Fred McGriff, and read all about Sid Bream's slide and the worst-to-first season of 1991. From the run of 14 consecutive division titles and the 1995 World Series title, to Kent Mercker's 1994 no-hitter; from the arrival of the Baby Braves in Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, and others, to the 2014 Hall of Fame induction of Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and Bobby Cox, the on and off the field stories are all here. Author Cory McCartney also includes stories about Hank Aaron, Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro, Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, John Smoltz, Bobby Cox, Freddie Freeman, and so many others.

This is the perfect addition to a Braves fan’s shelf!
