In What Year Was The Braves Last Tie?

- This question was probably the toughest of them all and one you may have had to look up.  The point of this trivia wasn’t for you to look up every answer to correctly get all questions correct but was to educate you on the Braves history.  The last tie was Thursday August 15, 2002 against the Giants.

What Was The First Team Name Of The Braves?

- The team name that the Braves originated with was the Boston Red Stockings in 1876.  They stayed the Stockings until 1883 when they changed their name to Boston Beaneaters.  They were called the Beaneaters until 1907 when they changed the team name to Boston Doves.  In 1911 they changed to Boston Rustlers for a season and in 1912, Boston changed their name to the Boston Braves.
