Atlanta Braves All-Time Roster

This is the Atlanta Braves all-time roster. I decided to select two players for each infield position, six outfielders (regardless of specific position), and one designated hitter for each AL team. Hitters had to have a minimum of 1,500 plate appearance. For pitching, we selected seven starting pitchers, three non-closers, and two closers. Starting pitchers had to start at least 100 games during their time with the franchise to qualify. Relief pitchers were deemed non-closers if they saved less than 30 games. Closers are pitchers that save more than 30 games.

  • The Braves are one of the oldest and in my top 5 greatest starting pitching staffs ever and perhaps the greatest number of 3B. Their biggest weakness is at catcher and at 1B where most other teams are very strong.

    C Joe Torre, Javier Lopez

    1B Freddie Freeman, Fred Tenney
    2B Bobby Lowe
    3B Eddie Mathews, Chipper Jones, Jimmy Collins, Bob Elliott, Darrell Evans
