The Atlanta Braves are best known for their glory days in the mid 1990s when the club boasted one of the greatest starting pitching rotations in the history of Major League Baseball. Hall of Fame hurlers Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and John Smoltz carried the Braves to the World Series crown in 1995 — the last time the franchise won a championship. The Braves and Cleveland Indians met up in the Fall Classic that season with Atlanta winning the title in six games.
Glavine turned in two solid outings during the championship, winning two games, including the World Series-clinching contest. He went on to take World Series MVP honors as well.
The Braves had reached the World Series twice in 1991 and 1992 but fell short on both occasions, losing to the Minnesota Twins and Toronto Blue Jays, respectively.
Hank Aaron — or Hammerin’ Hank as he was known — holds the franchise record for most home runs with 733 in a Braves uniform. His 3,600 hits with the organization also stands as a franchise best. Warren Spahn, who spent 12 seasons with the Braves when the club was based in Milwaukee, racked up a franchise-best 356 victories.

How To Win At Atlanta Braves Betting
The Atlanta Braves are on the right path to becoming a legitimate NL East Division contender.
While pitching remains an area of concern, the club has bolstered its batting order with the addition of star outfielder Matt Kemp — a consistent .300 average hitter. Kemp has recorded 100 or more RBIs three times in his career so far and has brought offense the Braves desperately needed to Atlanta.
The club also boasts promising prospects, including shortstop Dansby Swanson, who hit .302 in 129 at bats during the 2016 season. Swanson was ranked as the No. 17 prospect in the game by Baseball America — a sign of great things to come for the young shortstop.
The Braves also have promising young arms coming through the ranks, including southpaw Kolby Allard, who has a fastball in the low-90s.
This Braves team isn’t built to win right away but with the prospects growing in the system, it won’t be long before we see Atlanta back in contention for its first World Series title since 1995.
