Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Atlanta Braces.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
The Braves won the 2021 World Series with a star-studded team, but as this is a club with well over 100 years of tenure, none of the young stars made the top 50, though they were close.
As always, we present our top five, though there were no changes.
1. Hank Aaron
2. Warren Spahn
3. Kid Nichols
4. Greg Maddux
You can find the entire list here.
Freddie Freeman, who signed with the Dodgers in the off-season, and was ninth in
Ozzie Albies just missed out, and will likely reach the mid-40s next year. A monster season by Ronald Acuna will get the former Rookie of the Year to the top fifty.
