Who are the 25 most influential figures in Atlanta Braves history? The top 10 are easy, so no need to nominate the Hammer, Chipper, Mad Dog, Murph, etc.
But what about 11-25? Does Joe Torre, who had one outstanding season as both a manager and player, make the cut? What about pitching guru Johnny Sain, who taught Leo Mazzone everything he knows? And whither Gene Garber, the closer for so many forgettable teams?
We’ll begin the countdown soon so commence with the submissions. And remember, influential doesn’t always mean best.
