Based in Atlanta, Georga since 1966, the Braves were one of the most successful organizations in the 1990s and 2000s. Thanks to the likes of Chipper Jones, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Greg Maddux, the Braves flourished. Atlanta was the king of the NL West from 1991-93 and when the MLB placed the Braves in the NL East, they won the divisional crown from 1995-2005 and won a World Series title in 1995. Thanks to this storied run by the team, the above four players had their numbers retired by the franchise as did manager Bobby Cox.

A Freeman In Atlanta
As long as they have Freddie Freeman at first base, there will always be reason for hope and optimism in Atlanta. Freeman is a pure baseball stud, capable of hitting for both power and average.
Freeman, who won’t turn 28 until near the end of the 2017 season, is a .300 hitter, who will hit around 30 home runs and reach base from approximately 40 percent of his plate appearances. A few more like him and the Braves will be fine.
