[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1914 Boston Braves were forever after known as the "Miracle Braves". After finishing last in the National League for four consecutive seasons and then improving to fifth in 1913, they stunned the baseball world by not only winning the World Series, but also being the first club to sweep its opponent. Even more remarkable, they were in last place as late as mid-July before embarking on a incredible climb that saw them pass every one of their rivals before defeating the favorite Philadelphia Athletics in the Fall Classic.
