The Atlanta Braves, founded in 1871 as the Boston Red Stockings, are one of the oldest and most storied franchises in Major League Baseball (MLB). Originally based in Boston, Massachusetts, the Braves relocated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, before finally settling in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1966. Throughout their journey, the Braves have been led by a diverse group of managers, each contributing their expertise and leadership to shape the team’s legacy in the world of baseball. Ted Turner’s ownership of the team combined with their appearances on his TBS cable network helped turn the team into a national favorite. This was long before streaming and other high-priced subscription services.
