The name Braves which was first used in 1912, originated from a term for a Native American warrior. They are nicknamed ‘the Bravos’, and often referred to as ‘America’s Team’ in reference to the team’s games being broadcast nationally on TBS from the 1970s until 2007, giving the team a nationwide fan base.
The Braves was named from the 1966 till present. From 1991 to 2005, the Atlanta Braves were one of the most successful franchise in baseball. Winning an unprecedented 14 consecutive division titles and producing one of the greatest pitching rotation in the history of MLB.

Lets take a look at the years that the Atlanta Braves won their World Series ring.
1914 Atlanta Braves winning World Series ring
In the 1914 World Series, the Boston Braves, currently known as the Atlanta Braves, beat the Philadelphia Athletics in a four-game sweep.
A contender for greatest upset of all time, the “Miracle Braves” were in last place on July 4th, then roared on to win the National League pennant by 10-1/2 games and sweep the stunned Athletics. The Braves’ relatively unknown starting trio of pitchers, who would post a combined career record of 285-245, outperformed the Athletics vaunted rotation (929-654 career record) in all 4 games. Hank Gowdy hit .545 (6-11) with 5 extra-base hits and also drew 5 walks for Boston in the series, and was the difference maker in Games 1 and 3.
Adding to their supposed disadvantages, the Braves arguably lacked a notable home-field advantage. They had abandoned their 43-year-old home field South End Grounds in late summer, choosing to rent from the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park while awaiting construction of Braves Field. Thus their home games in this Series were at Fenway.
This was the first four-game sweep in World Series history. The Cubs had defeated the Tigers 4 games to 0 in 1907, but Game 1 had ended in a tie before the Cubs won the next four in a row.
In some circles, it was alleged that the A’s were irritated at the penny-pinching ways of their manager/owner Connie Mack, and did not play hard. Hall of Famer’s Chief Bender and Eddie Plank would jump to the rival Federal League for the 1915 season. Mack unloaded most of his other high-priced stars soon after and, within two years, the A’s achieved the worst winning percentage since 1900 (even worse than the 1962 New York Mets or the 2003 Detroit Tigers).
There were also rumors that this series was fixed, but unlike the 1919 World Series , if it was done, it was done subtly, and the fixers were not found out.
1957 Atlanta Braves winning World Series ring
The 1957 World Series featured the defending champion New York Yankees of the American League playing against the Milwaukee Braves, currently known as the Atlanta Braves, of the National League. After finishing just one game behind the N.L. Champion Brooklyn Dodgers in 1956, the Braves came back in 1957 to win their first pennant since moving from Boston in 1953. The Braves won the Series in seven games, behind Lew Burdette’s three complete game victories. The Braves would be the only team besides the Yankees, Dodgers, or Giants to win a World Series title in the 1950s.
The Yankees had home field advantage in the series. Games 1, 2, 6, and 7 were played at Yankee Stadium, while Milwaukee County Stadium hosted Games 3, 4, and 5. This was the first time since 1946 that the Series included scheduled off days after Games 2 and 5.
Of the previous ten World Series, the Yankees had participated in eight of them and won seven. This was also the first World Series since 1948 that a team from New York did not win.
This is the first of four Yankees-Braves matchups, and the only Series that was won by the Braves; they lost in 1958, 1996 and 1999, with the last two instances occurring with the Braves based in Atlanta.

This was also Cleveland’s first Series appearance in 41 years and marked the resumption of the Fall Classic after the previous year’s Series was canceled due to a players’ strike.
The World Series was also remarkable in that five of the six games were won by one run, including the clinching sixth game, a 1–0 combined one-hitter by Braves Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers.
This was the first time since the LCS changed to a best-of-seven format that a winner of a LCS via a sweep has gone on to win the World Series. It has since been repeated in 2019 by the Washington Nationals.
This World Series, despite being in an odd-numbered year, opened in the NL home because of the omission of the 1994 World Series.
