Strange things happen in baseball. It is fickle some days. When you are playing, it can just happen. Go figure!
“Braves Win Last Game for Boston, Milwaukee Loses It.” – BOSTON GLOBE, the March 18, 1953 headline lamenting the city’s National League franchise move to Milwaukee.
When the Braves’ move from Boston is officially approved unanimously by the National League owners, the team is on the field, beating the Yankees in the fifth inning, 3–0. The club now representing Milwaukee, as of 2:33 PM, blows the lead, dropping a 5-3 decision to the Yankees in the Bradenton, Florida exhibition game.
No other team can claim this bizarre of a twist to a game!
