Featuring an introduction by John Schuerholz, bios of all 40 players, and writeups of 10 key games from 1995.It has been 25 years since that magical night in Atlanta, October 28, 1995, when the Braves became the first team in any sport to give Atlanta a world championship. This book presents biographies of each of the 40 players who took the field in a Braves uniform in 1995. Many had long and successful big-league careers, and for others their time in The Show was brief. But they all contributed to that championship season, and they all have interesting stories. Nine players made their major-league debuts with the 1995 Braves, and for three team members, that season marked the end of their big-league careers. Four members-Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, and John Smoltz-along with manager Bobby Cox and general manager John Schuerholz have been enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.There are exciting stories of the 10 most notable games of the 1995 season, and behind-the-scenes stories of many of the Braves' front office personnel, who worked tirelessly, both at the major-league and the minor-league levels, to mold a championship organization. Not all are familiar names, but each played an integral part in making the Atlanta Braves the team they are today.What this 1995 team accomplished was the pinnacle of a nearly 30-year run of excellence for the Braves, and that tradition continues. I am very pleased that SABR provided the opportunity for a dedicated group of 56 members to contribute as researchers, authors, and/or editors.-adapted from the Introduction, Tom HuffordPLAYERSSteve Avery, Tom HuffordSteve Bedrosian, Wynn MontgomeryRafael Belliard, Joe CoxJeff Blauser, Creg StephensonPedro Borbon Jr., Justin KruegerTerry Clark, Tony OliverBrad Clontz, Jesse AsburyMike Devereaux, Greg KingEd Giovanola, Clayton TrutorTom Glavine, Joseph WanchoMarquis Grissom, Alan MorrisChipper Jones, Jacob PomrenkeDavid Justice, Sean TetersMike Kelly, Joel RippelRyan Klesko, Joel RippelBrian Kowitz, Jack ZerbyMark Lemke, Paul HofmannJavy Lopez, Kyle EatonGreg Maddux, Stew ThornleyDarrell May, Darin WatsonFred McGriff, Peter M.
