The Atlanta Braves play in the National League East division, heavily competitive with the other teams such as the Philadelphia Phillies and the rising Washington Nationals, the Miami Marlins, and the New York Mets. Dating back to 1871 when they were called the Boston Red Stockings, the organization has exhibited greatness and success on the baseball field. Their list of historic legends runs long; Chipper Jones, Hank Aaron, John Smoltz and Bobby Cox are just a few. They have won World Series titles in 1914, 1957, and 1995, but have also placed into the playoffs and into the World Series many times as well.
The Braves are looking to continue their success in seasons to come. They have an All-Star catcher and starter in Brian McCann and Tim Hudson, and a plethora of talented youth in Jason Heyward, Dan Uggla, Freddie Freeman, Craig Kimbrel, and Tommy Hanson. The Braves are certainly in position to compete for a World Series title this season and for many seasons to come.
