1914 Boston Braves - Great Teams Week #2

1914 Boston Braves (H)

Know as the "Miracle Braves" the 1914 Braves came from last place on July 4th to win the National League Pennant.  In early July they were 26-40 and ended 94-59, 10 1/2 games ahead of second place New York.  They swept the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1914 World Series. 

Unlike the 1908 Cubs there is very little written about the "Miracle Braves". 

There are a few chapters in this book about the 1914 Braves' season from their Hall of Fame shortstop, Rabbit Maranville, as well as many great anecdotes from his career.
