When the Braves reported to spring training in February, they had championship aspirations. They fell just short the previous October and spent the winter supplementing a talented young core that had embarked on three postseason runs. They entered this season believing they had assembled a roster, both talent- and chemistry-wise, that could finally break through.
Nobody could’ve imagined how the ensuing journey would unfold.
Twenty-six years and 16 postseason appearances since that memorable Oct. 28 day in 1995, the Braves brought Atlanta its second World Series championship Tuesday in Houston. This team’s one-of-a-kind story will be shared and referenced across generations with the simplest yet most invaluable lesson: never give up.
