Atlanta Braves 2012 Baseball Season Review

Atlanta Braves 2012 Baseball Season Review:
The 2012 Atlanta Braves season was the Braves' 16th season of home games at Turner Field. It was the Braves' 47th season in Atlanta. It was the Braves 137th season of the franchise. When a late season collapse in 2011 kept the Braves from the playoffs, the team returned to the postseason for the second time in three seasons as a Wild Card team, with a record of 94-68. Unfortunately, they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the one-game Wild Card Playoff. All in all, it was a great season!
Atlanta's New Jerseys:
The Braves held a ceremony on February 6 which unveiled new home alternate uniforms to be worn in 2012. They had Chipper Jones, Dan Uggla, and Brian McCann model the new uniform and Hank Aaron present to help introduce it. Remember it? It was great!
The new jersey is a cream color, instead of white, and has a retro look reminiscent of the uniforms from the days in Milwaukee and first two years in Atlanta with the uniform number on the front of the jersey instead of a tomahawk.
Chipper Jones retirement:
After nineteen seasons with the Atlanta Braves, third baseman Chipper Jones announced on March 22, 2012 that he would retire at the end of the season. Jones held a news conference the same day at Champion Stadium, the Spring Training home of the team. The entire Braves team and former manager Bobby Cox were in attendance for the official announcement. Having spent the first eighteen seasons of his career with the Braves, Chipper leads all active players in years of service with one club, and everyone is sad to see him go.
Thanks for a great season, fans. The Atlanta Braves appreciate your support through going to games and buying tickets!
