Synopses & Reviews
The newest addition to the Tales from the Team series, Tales from the Atlanta Braves Dugout
includes stories on the greatest players and coaches to don the Braves uniform. Author Cory McCartney includes stories about Hank Aaron, Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro, Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Bobby Cox, and so many others.
Recall the harrowing experience of Atlantaand#150;Fulton County Stadium catching fire on July 21, 1993, overshadowing the debut of Fred McGriff, and read all about Sid Bream's slide and the worst-to-first season of 1991. From the run of 14 consecutive division titles and the 1995 World Series title, to Kent Mercker's 1994 no-hitter; from the arrival of the Baby Braves in Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, and others, to the 2014 Hall of Fame induction of Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and Bobby Cox, the on and off the field stories are all here.
This is the perfect addition to a Braves fanand#8217;s shelf!
