400 Fan Club Zoom Presentation with Braves Historian Sam Wallace

February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The 400 Fan Club’s next Zoom program on Tuesday, February 23, will show many photos from and preview two new books celebrating Braves history! 

The first, available now in the Braves Clubhouse Store, is a photo book tracing the team’s 150 year history through high quality photos.  It features a forward and introduction by Braves CEO Terry McGuirk and Hank Aaron as well as pages devoted to historical uniforms, artifacts, and Braves Hall of Famers.  It is divided into three sections covering the Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta eras.

The 2021 season marks the Braves 150th Anniversary (1871-2021).  The second book, coming this spring, is a historical narrative presenting the story of our team in two sections.  The first looks at the Braves’ 15 decades featuring the best, the worst, and the most interesting moments and characters for each decade.  The second section is a ranking of the best players in Braves history at each position.

Program presenter Sam Wallace is a Braves historian and archivist whose responsibilities include Ballpark Tours, Heritage and Hall of Fame.  As co-editor of the photo book and author of the history book, Sam will:

  • Share photos from and narrate an overview of both books followed by Q&A 
  • Preview Braves 150th anniversary events and celebrations on tap for 2021
  • Present a brief history of scoreboards in Braves history

This is a free program for 400 Fan Club members.  Although it’s a complimentary membership benefit, you must register in advance to receive the Zoom link via email.  For questions please leave a message on the 400 Fan Club Hotline (770) 416-4539.
