Milwaukee Braves

The 1965 Milwaukee Braves season was the 13th and final season for the franchise in Milwaukee before moving to Atlanta for the following season along with the 95th season overall.

The Braves finished the season with a record of 86–76, 11 games behind the eventual World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

Having finished the season with a winning record for the 13th year in a row, the Braves never had a losing season during their time in Milwaukee.

The Braves were managed by Bobby Bragan, while they played their home games at County Stadium. As a result, Milwaukee would not have another MLB team for the remainder of the decade.

Their next team would arrive when the Seattle Pilots of the American League moved there in 1970, and became the Brewers. The Pilots spent their first season, 1969, as the Seattle Pilots in Seattle, Washington. The Pilots played home games at Sick’s Stadium and were a member of the West Division of Major League Baseball’s American League.

On April 1, 1970, they moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
