Frank Selee - Boston Beaneaters

Frank Selee – Boston Beaneaters

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!!
