The other day I was asked by a friend what my favorite Braves game of all time was, I couldn't really think of a single one but several stood out. I'm not old like some of you on here so I don't remember the early glory days of the Braves in the 90's. I know that I watched those game with my father but I don't remember them. So I picked out a few of the big moments in Braves history to see if we can pinpoint the greatest moment in Braves history. If your favorite moment didn't make the poll, vote other and throw in a comment on what you believe the greatest moment in Braves history is.
1. 1991- The infamous worst to first season. The Braves went 55-28 in the second half of the season and lost in game 7 of the World Series.
2. 1995- The Atlanta Braves win their first World Series! this will be a tough one to beat, what a great feeling a world title brings.
3. 1974- Hammerin Hank Aaron hits #715 to become the home run king..(Still is in my opinion)
4.1992- Sid Bream and the slide! Fransico Cabrera delivers a pinch hit single as the Braves battled back in the 9th to win the National League pennant.
5. 2010- This is a bittersweet moment but is one of my personal favorites. We all knew this was Bobby's last season and the team was just scrappy. I remember the sensational play of Troy Glaus(MAY) and the emergence of Jason Heyward. Losing Cox was such a sad moment in all of Braves country, but if he had to go I am glad he went out in the playoffs. The first time the Braves had made the postseason since 2005. I hope we can send Chipper out this year in October.. with a World Series title.
