It is always interesting to hear people's "Braves Stories". How someone became a Braves fan or why their love for the Braves is so strong. Is there a particular moment in Braves history that stands out to you more than another? Some of us were born into families that loved the Braves. Others became fans while the Braves were being played on TBS every day. Then there are some that may be Braves fans because of their string of success in the 90s and early 2000s. I'd like to hear what your Braves story is and how you because a Braves fan. I've included a poll asking how you became a Braves fan.
My Braves story is: I was born into Braves love. My father, brothers, uncle's, and cousins were all Braves fans. I remember watching Braves games as a little boy in the family room, while my Dad played wiffle ball with me inside the house (Mom wasn't to happy about that). But the one moment in Braves history that cemented me as a Braves fan was in October of 1992. It was my 7yr Birthday Party and at the end of the party my Dad says "I got us tickets to the World Series game tonight in Atlanta." I remember being pumped and my Dad and I getting in the car and heading towards Atlanta. It was October 17th and the Braves defeated the Blue Jays 3-1. I honestly don't remember the actual game at all. I remember having a great time and the fans being so loud. It is an experience I will never forget.
