Billy Southworth

The war is over!! It is 1946. Lights are added to Braves Field. All is right with the world.

The country is ready to move ahead and so are the Boston Braves. Billy Southworth arrives from St. Louis to manage the Braves. He has a three-year contract bringing with him three pennants and two World Series titles from his time with the Cardinals.

Lou Perini and his partners are pulling out all the stops. They put up neon foul poles and bought satin jerseys for the players. What for? The night games.
