The team competes in the Eastern Division of the National League. The Braves have the honor of winning their division title 14 consecutive times beginning with 1991 and ending in 2005, omitting the strike-shortened 1994 season in which no division champions were officially crowned. Overall, the Braves have been successful in winning 16 divisional titles, nine National League pennants, and three World Series championships (1914, 1957, and 1995). The Braves have the distinction of being one of the only two remaining charter members left in the National League along with the Chicago Cubs.
The Cincinnati Base Ball Club was the sponsor of the first professional baseball team in 1869. After the 1870 season, It was dissolved through voting.

They were 15 games behind the league-leading New York Giants. However, the Braves won 41 games and lost 12 games from July 4-September 7. The Braves moved into first place after beating the New York Giants on September 7th and September 8th.

Fuch was facing financial crisis at that time due to the Great Depression. Fuchs worked out a deal with the New York Yankees as he was looking for a way to get more fans and more money. He was successful in acquiring Babe Ruth, who had ironically started his career with the Red Sox. Ruth was mad made vice president of the team with a share of the Braves' profits by Fuchs.
1990s: Successes and Stars

They traded Dale Murphy to the Philadelphia Phillies (http:ticketnestsports-ticketsPhiladelphia-Philliesindex.php) after it was clear he was becoming a less dominant player. However, young pitchers Tom Glavine, Steve Avery, and John Smoltz started getting training by pitching coach Leo Mazzone. That same year, the Braves used the number one overall pick in the Major League Baseball Draft to select Chipper Jones, who would become a star player.
The Braves made the most important move in the front office. John Schuerholz was hired away from the Kansas City Royals as general manager immediately after the season.
The following season, Glavine, Avery, and Smoltz were successful in earning the recognition as the best young pitchers in the league. They wong 52 games between them.
Meanwhile, the Braves were successful in overcoming a slow start behind position players Dave Justice Cheap Jerseys From China , Ron Gant and unexpected league Most Valuable Player and batting champion Terry Pendleton.

2005: A New Generation
