It has been 25 years since that magical night in Atlanta, October 28, 1995, when the Braves became the first team in any professional sport to give Atlanta a world championship. Join us online on Tuesday, September 29, at 7:00 PM for a virtual look back at that magical season.
A new book, Braves Win! Braves Win! Braves Win! The 1995 World Champion Atlanta Braves presents biographies of each of the 40 players who took the field in a Braves uniform in 1995. Many had long and successful big-league careers, and for others their time in The Show was brief. But they all contributed to that championship season and they all have interesting stories. Nine players made their major-league debuts with the 1995 Braves, and for three team members, that season marked the end of their big-league careers.
Four members of the 1995 Atlanta Braves—Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, and John Smoltz—along with manager Bobby Cox and general manager John Schuerholz (who wrote the book’s foreword) have been enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, in Cooperstown, New York.
Four of the book’s authors, Tom Hufford, Alan Morris, Jacob Pomrenke, and Sam Gazdziak will share stories and present highlights of the book in an online Zoom discussion of the 1995 season. It’s not necessary for you to have read the book to enjoy this online session.
