Boston Doves Managers & Finishes

The Braves franchise began in 1876 in Boston, moved to a Milwaukee in 1953, and came to a stop in Atlanta in 1966. Over the course of a century-plus they have seen three cities and many different official names. All their stats, schedules, uniform numbers, and history can be found on the Atlanta Braves team page and posted below is a chart with links to their managerial pages:

Boston Red Caps


Boston Beaneaters


Boston Doves


Boston Rustlers


Boston Braves


Boston Bees


Boston Braves


Milwaukee Braves


Atlanta Braves


The Rustlers was their shortest name in franchise history, but the Doves were a close second and "probably" changed their name due to their performance.
