Aug. 12 a day rich in Braves history

There was the Smoltz trade, referenced in the previous post, and this:

(1984)

All hell broke loose at Fulco between the Braves and Padres.

(2001)

Greg Maddux walked Steve Finley after going 72.1 innings without allowing a free pass.

(2011)

On the night the Braves effectively ended Carlos Zambrano’s Cubs career, we learned that Ernie Johnson Sr. died.

Thanks to Chris Jaffe at Hardball Times for the tip.

  1. I follow, read and comment your blog for three reasons

    1) your Braves knowledge/fandom
    2) the recognition of my favorite Braves before Dale Murphy
    3) the yearly recounts of that fight with the Spanish Fathers.
