Atlanta Braves Spring Training Team
Braves have been one of the most dominant teams of the last two decades, winning an amazing 10 National League East Titles
in a row from 1995-2005. They were led by a trio of aces, John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, and Greg Maddux, who won six Cy Young
Awards between them in the 1990's. While being led by legendary manager Bobby Cox from 1978-1981 and from 1986-2010, the
Braves dominated the National League. In the post-Cox era, the Braves have picked right where they left off, winning yet another
National League East title in 2013 under skipper Fredi Gonzalez. They lost a few key players over the offseason, including
longtime catcher Brian McCann to the Yankees, but locked up many key positions as well as made a splash by signing veteran
starting pitcher Ervin Santana to a one year deal. The Braves are continuing to do what has made them so successful all these
years, building depth through their farm system and looking for deals in the free agent market. Head down Lake Buena Vista
and check out the Atlanta Braves in Spring Training to get a first look at the 2014 squad who will be looking to win the National
League East once again on their way to a World Series Title.
