The story of the 1914 "Miracle" Boston Braves is one of the most memorable in baseball history, but less well known is what the club did after that spectacular season. They didn't "flash and disappear", as sports writer John Kieran put it. In 1915, they were strong contenders for the National League pennant, and almost won it again in 1916. This book is the first to look at the "Miracle" Braves in a larger context.

Under the innovative manager George Stallings, the Braves won Boston's first National League pennant in 17 years. Their startling sweep of the mighty Philadelphia Athletics was their league's only World Series victory from 1909 to 1919. The Braves of those years - like the hot-tempered Georgian who managed them - were a roistering, pugnacious crew that battled the opposition, the umpires and sometimes each other.
