Product Details
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.

William Povletich is a native of Mequon, Wisconsin, and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Povletich's documentary "Henry Aaron's Summer Up North" was an official selection to the 2006 National Baseball Hall of Fame Film Festival and the 2005 Wisconsin Film Festival.

He is the author of Green Bay Packers: Legends in Green and Gold and has written about the Milwaukee Braves and Liberace for the "Wisconsin Magazine of History."
