Beginnings...

Boston Red Stockings

*The Braves franchise started as the 'Boston Red Stockings' in 1870.

*The Boston Red Stockings become known as the Beaneaters to tie their identity to Boston and avoid confusion with the Cincinnati Reds.

*In 1907, the team changed names; the Beaneaters become known as the Doves, after the new owners, the Dovey brothers.

*The 'Braves' nickname was adopted.

*In 1936 The Braves' name was changed to the Bees due to fan opinion. The 'Braves' field was referred to as the 'BeeHive".

*In the Spring of 1953, because of declining fan support in Boston the Braves became the 'Milwaukee Braves'.

*Again due to fan support in 1966 ...the Milwaukee Braves were moved to atalnta and became the Atlanta Braves.
