By William Povletich

Unlike many sports books that simply glorify a team, Milwaukee Braves digs deep to unearth what the Braves meant (culturally and economically) to the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin, and to the sport of baseball. Based on solid research and interviews with remaining players, staff, officials, and with fans, Milwaukee Braves Heroes and Heartbreak looks not just the wins but the losses, the disappointments, and the heartbreak of the team’s exodus from Milwaukee.
