The easiest choices of this were the Hank Aaron, Bobby Cox, and the pitching staff.
I am a huge fan of pre-1900 baseball, and I had no idea that the Boston Red Stockings of the National Association were "related" to the Braves.
I tried to fit Al Splalding, who played for the Red Stockings, into the pitching staff, but I couldn't take anyone out. Luckily, Spalding was also a good hitter so I put him on the bench.
Bobby Lowe was a great player who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He was the first player to hit four home runs in a game.
Chipper Jones is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Braves uniform. He will surely reach the Hall of Fame once his career's over.
Andruw Jones is another great player who had a great career in Atlanta, but once he left, his career went south.
