    No Retrosheet for this one:

    In the 13th game of the Braves' 13-game win streak to start 1982, the game could have ended on a double play in the 9th, but Brett Butler's batted ball hit a Braves runner as he ran from second to third. The Braves' backup catcher was called out and the Braves found new life. Jim Kern threw a wild pitch, advancing Rafael Ramirez to third and Butler to second. Biff Pocoroba was intentionally walked and Claudell Washington slapped a two-run single to center to win the game.

    Who was the runner who was called out for interference?

    You got it! I think he's a coach for the Cubs now.

    Bobby Cox holds the National League record for most All-Star Games lost. How many losses has he managed?

    How many losses overall? or How losses as manger of the All star team?

    Oh, if only that were true.

    Hint: Remember how All-Star managers are selected.

    Yessir.

    Who hit the first home run in the All-Star Game as a member of the Braves?

    Hint: He was an MVP.

  11. Max West in 1940 for the Boston Braves

    Whoops. Missed him. And here, I thought it was Bob Elliott. That's correct.

    Doesn't Chipper Jones have the record with 11

  15. I don't think Chipper ever played first base... perhaps you're thinking third?

    Fred McGriff had 5, but I'm thinking it's not that easy....

    McGriff only had 3 NLDS series with the Braves.

  17. Oops, right you are.... now I have no idea what the answer is...

    Then the question needs to be reworded. Something like....Who holds the record for appearing in the most Division Series as a Brave first baseman?...would be clearer.

    I thought I was pretty clear on the way I was wording it. Boy, I have a cruddy question streak!

    Francisco Cabrera had the pennant winning hit in the 1992 NLCS. Sid Bream scored the winning run. Who scored the TYING run?

  21. David Justice!
    I remember watching that game on TV when I was a kid... when we won I ran around the house screaming with joy for a good half-hour.
    Wasn't that the year that the next morning's AJC had the word "YES!" in about 100pt font on the front page with a picture Bream crossing the plate?

    Yessir.

    Along that vein of newspaper headlines...

    What explosive word was coupled with the 15-0 score announcing the Braves' 1996 NLCS victory in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution?

  23. KABOOM! 15-0

    Yes sir! That was a cool headline.

    The Braves led the National League in attendance in only one year in Atlanta. What was it?
