The 1956 Milwaukee Braves had a lot going for them. They could have won the pennant but didn’t.
They ended up with a record of 92-62, a seven game improvement over the previous year. They came close but ended up one game behind. Charlie Grimm started the year as manager but Fred Haney ended it for them.
The team was essentially the same, player wise, as the year before. They built on the previous year’s success and made some new gains experience wise. The Braves made some progress against the Brooklyn Dodgers but came up just a little short.
The race was tight, the Milwaukee Braves ended one game behind the Dodgers and Cincinnati one game behind the Braves.
