The current Atlanta Braves franchise was originally located in Boston and created by a group of former Cincinnati Red Stockings players in 1871.
They didn't get too creative with the name in that they called this new team the Boston Red Stockings. They did eventually change the nickname to the Red
Caps, and later to the Beaneaters, due to the area's famous Boston Baked Beans.
James Gaffney bought the team in 1912, and adopted the nickname Braves for his new team after the Native American symbol used for his Tammany Hall
political group Gaffney was associated with. The organization relocated to Milwaukee in 1953, and finally to Atlanta in 1966 but always retained the Braves
