In existence from 1953 to 1965, the Milwaukee Braves played in Major League Baseball’s National League East and West Division before their relocation and name change to the Atlanta braves in 1966. While in Milwaukee the Braves called Milwaukee County Stadium home.
Coming to Wisconsin after tenure in Boston, the braves already had years of experience and success under their belts, as well as many Pennant wins and a World Series win. With Eddie Matthews and Hank Aaron driving in homer after homer for the Braves, this Milwaukee squad garnered up several more NL Pennants and a World Series title against the Chicago White Sox in 1957. After years of up and down success, the Braves relocated to Atlanta where they continued on their path of greatness.
