How many World Series have the Braves won?

In franchise history, the Braves have won three World Series: in 1914, 1957, and 1995. Of those three wins, two came when the team was in Atlanta and one came when the team was in Boston.

Overall, the Braves have won 89 games in World Series history; they've lost 114 games (including the current series). The team's overall win-loss record is 1083-1079.

Since the establishment of the National League in 1876, only the American League has more World Series victories with 13. However, from 1904 to 1955, neither the AL nor the NL had a perfect season so no World Series were played during that period.

The most recent championship run for the Braves began in 1995 when Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, and Greg Maddux led the team to its third straight National League East title. In the NLCS, Mike Hampton, Jeff Blauser, and Kevin Millwood carried the Braves to their first of back-to-back National League pennants.

How many times have the Atlanta Braves lost the World Series?

The team has three World Series titles: one in Boston, one in Milwaukee, and one in Atlanta. Furthermore, the Braves have had spells of futility. From 1903 through 1913, the team suffered eleven successive losing seasons, six of which they lost more than 100 games. From 1914 to 1960, they never finished better than fourth place.

However, from 1961 to today, they have a winning record every year except 1973 when they finished second behind Oakland. In addition, the Braves have made the playoffs ten out of eleven years since 1992, when they last missed the postseason. They are currently heading into their 11th season in Atlanta.

If you include the 1995 World Series victory over the Yankees in New York, then the Braves have won four World Series titles. Three of them were played in Atlanta while one was played in Boston. The team's all-time best finish is in 1972 when they finished first place with a record of 97-65. They were only two games ahead of Cincinnati who had the best record in baseball that season.

Since 1962, the Braves have always been above.500 and have not had a losing season until 1973. During that time frame, they have made the playoffs every year except 1970 when they finished third behind Baltimore and 1971 when they also finished third but got in based on more wins. In addition, from 1967 to 1969, they did not even qualify for the playoffs.

How many games has Atlanta won in the World Series?

The Atlanta Braves are an American professional baseball club headquartered in Atlanta that has won three World Series. The club is the only major league franchise that has played every season since professional baseball began. They have three World Series championships (1914, 1957, and 1995), as well as 17 National League (NL) pennants. The team plays in the NL East division of the MLB.

Atlanta has hosted a Major League Baseball (MLB) team since 1871, when the Boston Red Caps toured Southern United States to promote their game. After two seasons, during which the team went 21-23 and 20-22 respectively, the Red Caps were disbanded and their players distributed among the other MLB teams. The Braves franchise was founded in 1953 by William Blyleven, Larry Doby, and John Quinn, who had been part of the original group that brought baseball to Atlanta. The team initially played at various locations around Atlanta before moving into Turner Field in 1991. In 1992, they won the NL West title with a record of 103-58, but lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the playoffs.

In 1994, the Braves returned to the World Series for the first time since 1914, when they lost to your old friend, the Baltimore Orioles. From 1995 to 2003, the Braves made the postseason each year, culminating in a World Series win over the Yankees in 1995. Since then, however, they haven't been back to the Series, with their last appearance coming in 2004.

How did the Atlanta Braves get to the World Series?

The Braves won the NL Division Series three games to none before defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Championship Series four games to three. It was the Braves' second World Series trip in a row. They lost to the Texas Rangers in seven games.

Atlanta defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, four games to two, in the National League Division Series. This is the first time that any team has accomplished this feat twice in the history of the World Series. The last time this happened was in 2016 when the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in seven games.

Why do they call them "Braves"?

When John Henry and Thomas Gwinnett acquired a group of former prison inmates in 1868, they gave each man a suit of clothes and a job when they released them from jail. These men were known as "Brawley Boys" after one of their groups. When John Henry died in 1870 at the age of 32, his wife Mollie renamed the company "The Atlanta Braves". She wanted her son to have something to call himself besides "The Brawley Boy". So the team was called "The Braves" after Mrs. Henry's son.

Can I follow the Braves season-by-season?

Yes!

How many pennants have the Cubs won?

The Cubs are members of the National League (NL) and have won three World Series (1907, 1908, and 2016).

The franchise was founded in 1876 by William Hulbert as the Chicago White Stockings. In 1971, the White Stockings name was dropped in favor of the Cubs. The team has had only two presidents: William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt. They both served one term each.

Taft was elected in 1909 and died in 1913 before he could be re-elected. His brother Arthur took his place on the ballot and was elected afterward. Teddy Roosevelt then served out the rest of his term after Arthur's death. He too died before his term was up but was replaced by William Howard Taft again! Both men were Republicans while the president-elect was John Fitzgerald Kennedy of Massachusetts.

The Cubs have played their home games at Wrigley Field since 1914. The ballpark is known for its ivy-covered walls, which help it become a popular spot for photos. It is also located just off of North Clark Street and West Addison Street in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.

Wrigley Field has been called the "Friendly Neighborhood Park" because it is so close to the community.

Have the Florida Marlins won a World Series?

The Marlins have two NL pennants and two World Series titles (1997 and 2003). The only other team to win two World Series in their first three seasons was the New York Yankees from 1956 to 1958.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is the greatest owner in baseball history. He has turned a small-market team into a large-market team by trading for Paul Beeston, Mike Lowell, Josh Beckett, Dontrelle Willis, Carl Pavano, and Miguel Cabrera. The Marlins are worth $1 billion, which is the most of any franchise.

Florida has been a major league city since 1993, when the Miami Dolphins moved out of Buffalo. The Marlins played their first game on April 13, 1992, at Joe Robbie Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals. Florida defeated St. Louis 3-2 in 12 innings. Jose Mesa got the victory after pitching a no-hit game with one out in the 12th.

The Marlins have one of the best ball parks in baseball - Sun Life Stadium. It has a classic ballpark layout with power seats throughout the yard. There's also a museum display case featuring some of the most memorable moments in Marlin history.
