The Braves are the oldest continuously operated franchise in National League history and are one of just six Major League clubs with more than 10,000 victories—that’s more than the Boston Red Sox or the New York Yankees and nearly 1,000 more than the Philadelphia Phillies (though the Phils have lost 10,000-plus games).
In baseball’s modern era the Braves franchise has won three World Series titles, 17 Pennants, and made 22 playoff appearances … not to mention an unprecedented run of 14 consecutive Division Titles and the team of the 1990s under the leadership of Bobby Cox.
A virtual who’s who of Hall of Fame legends also claim the Braves as their home team: Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, Eddie Mathews, and Phil Niekro to name a few—not to mention soon-to-be Hall of Famers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Chipper Jones.
The Braves franchise tells some of baseball’s greatest stories, including the “Worst-to-First” 1991 Braves, the legendary career of Manager Bobby Cox, and the unprecedented Cy Young success for the Braves during the 1990s—and most of them are in this eBook, so step up to the challenge and test your knowledge with these hardball questions about your favorite team—all the sluggers, hurlers, and greatest moments in Atlanta Braves history … 51 questions to challenge the diehard Braves fan.

51 Questions for the Dihard Fan: Atlanta Braves
I went throught this book, and let me tell you this, it is well worth the money. Do not let this go by.
51 Questions for the Diehard Fan: Atlanta Braves
1989. That was the year I became a baseball fan. Also the year I became a Braves fan. I've never cheered for another team. Having said that, I learned a TON with this book. It is written in such a way that you start with the earlier years and work your way forward, but not always in order. It was great to relish some of the great acheivements of the Braves as well as learn some little know or older trivia!
Aside from the content the book is well done. There is enough print and media mixed in to keep you entertained and make it enjoyable to read multiple times. I did find one of the trivia sections had every answer the same (minor issue) but overall I thouroughly enjoyed the book and would (and have) recommend it to friends and family.
*full disclosure* I was offered this book free of charge by the author. Not in exchange for anything other than an honest opinion.
