America’s favorite pastime in Atlanta

baseball field

When you think Atlanta baseball, the Braves are probably the first name that comes to mind. Making Atlanta their home in 1966, they have become an institution to professional baseball and locals. But what about before their time?

Professional baseball in Atlanta began as early as 1885 with the Southern League – long before we learned to #ChopOn. After 14 years the Southern League ended, and the Southern Association began. Atlanta’s team name varied, including Windjammers, Firecrackers, Crackers and more – eventually going on to win seven Southern Association League titles.

Now, we’re proud to be called the home of the Braves.
