Finally!! In Frank Selee‘s 8th season (1897) as manager, the Braves (then known as the Boston Beaneaters) had the best record in the franchise history at that time. They finished first, 93-39 and 2 games ahead. Frank was able to get the best out of them like he did earlier in his career.
How good would this record be in the modern era? A team today would have to win 115 games out of the current 162 game schedule. It was a .705 percentage record.
In 1993, the Braves had a .642 record which brought them 104 wins.
This was an amazing year for sure!!
