The Atlanta Braves are a professional baseball team from Atlanta, Georgia. The Atlanta Braves compete in the Eastern Division of Major League Baseball's National League. Since 1997, the Atlanta Braves have played their home games in Turner Field Stadium. The Atlanta "Braves" nickname originates from the term for a Native American warrior and was first introduced in 1912. The Atlanta Braves are nicknamed "the Bravos" and have gained a wide fanbase ever since the Atlanta Braves games were broadcast nationally on TBS, a deal which ended in the 2008 season.
