The Richmond Virginians moved to Toledo leaving Richmond with no team in 1965. But with the Milwaukee Braves moving to Atlanta, they moved the Atlanta Crackers to Virginia to become the Richmond Braves in 1966.
Following disagreements about management of The Diamond between the Atlanta Braves and the city of Richmond, VA, it was announced on January 15, 2008 that the team would be moving to a newly built $40 million stadium in Gwinnett County, Georgia for the 2009 season to become the Gwinnett Braves.
