Atlanta Braves: Power Ranking the Retired Numbers

1 of 11

Disclaimer: Power Ranking the 10 retired jerseys by the Atlanta Braves organization is incredibly difficult.  We’re picking between Hall of Famers here because our beloved Braves have had some amazing players in their impressive 140+ years as an organization.

With our favorite baseball team struggling so badly entering September of the 2015 MLB Season, I decided that it is time to again feel good about what the Atlanta Braves have accomplished in their fifty seasons in Atlanta.

In 50 seasons in Atlanta, the Braves won their division 17 times, including an unprecedented 14 in a row (1991-2005), went to 5 World Series, and winning it all in 1995 over the Cleveland Indians to bring the City of Atlanta its first and only professional championship to date.

To have sustained success, you must have top-flight players, probably a few Hall of Famers in all honesty.  The Atlanta Braves have had the pleasure of honoring ten men for their accomplishments with the organization by retiring their respective numbers.

In Atlanta, the numbers 3, 6, 10, 21, 29, 31, 35, 41, 44, and 47 can no longer be worn by any member of the Atlanta Braves.  These numbers along with Jackie Robinson‘s sacred 42 impressively wrap their way around second level of Turner Field’s grandstand.

This is SO hard to do but I will do my best to power rank the 10 retired jerseys by the Atlanta Braves.  You probably know who is 10th and who will finish 1st.  Selecting 2nd through 9th is like picking between children.  To me, there isn’t a wrong answer how you stack 2 through 9 in this list.  I decided to do it strictly on their legacy with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves alone.  So here we go…
