  • Milwaukee braves history

    I just read "Milwaukee Braves, Heroes and Heartbreak", an excellent history overview of the 13 years the Braves franchise was located in Milwaukee. This would be a good Christmas gift for anyone interested in the Braves of old.

    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

        Reading the reviews in the link didn't answer my question of how much/well the book deals with the move to and from Milwaukee. That's something I'm interested in learning more about. Can you shed some light on how well the book deals with this ? (not asking for a synopsis of the two moves, more like a review on that aspect of the book, thanks).

          The move and the reasons behind it are covered in pretty extensive detail in the first chapter. The subsequent move from Milwaukee to Atlanta is also well covered. I found it very informative and interesting.

            That's great, thank you.

            Is this the only book you know of that deals with the moves ?

              Yes, it is.
