9781613218372: When the Braves Ruled the Diamond: Fourteen Flags over Atlanta

From 1991 through 2005, the Atlanta Braves did something no pro sports team can match, finishing in first place for fourteen consecutive seasons.

During that stretch, the Braves parlayed powerful pitching with potent hitting that produced under pressure. Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox won with veteran teams, young teams, slugging teams, and several times with teams that emphasized speed and defense. His teams captured 100 wins in six different seasons.

In When the Braves Ruled the Diamond, former AP sportswriter Dan Schlossberg covers the record-breaking era that transformed Atlanta from the Bad-News Braves to America's Team. With separate chapters on Cox, fabled pitching coach Leo Mazzone, and Hall of Fame pitchers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz, this book also highlights the contributions of Andres Galarraga, Andruw Jones, Chipper Jones, Brian Jordan, Javy Lopez, Terry Pendleton, and many more Braves stars. It features year-by-year summaries, Opening Day lineups, and even oddball anecdotes that explain why the fourteen-year streak may never be duplicated. It is the perfect gift for fans of baseball history as well as fans of the Atlanta Braves!

About the Author:

Dan Schlossberg, a former AP sportswriter, is the author of thirty-six baseball books, including Called Out But Safe, a collaboration with former umpire Al Clark; The 300 Club: Have We Seen the Last of Baseball’s 300-Game Winners; and The Baseball Catalog, a compendium that was an alternate for the Book of the Month Club as a 1980 hardcover. The baseball editor of Latino Sports, he writes for USA TODAY Sports Weekly, New York Natives, New Jersey Lifestyle, and various Boston Red Sox publications, among others. An unabashed Braves fan since 1957 when the Milwaukee Braves beat the Yankees in the World Series, Dan has followed the team closely as both a fan and a sportswriter for more than fifty years.
Bobby Cox is a former third baseman for the New York Yankees as well as former manager for the Toronto Blue Jays and Atlanta Braves. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013.
