Based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States – The Atlanta Braves are a professional baseball team formed in 1870 and was originally called as the Boston Red Stockings. The team is a member of Major League Baseball’s National Team (Eastern Division). In 1871, the team emerged as one of the National League’s nine charter members.

The name of the team changed to Boston Bees on 1936, and in 1941 they reemerged as Boston Braves. In 1953, they became the Milwaukee Braves, and finally in 1966 the baseball team became known as the Atlanta Braves.
