Update: The Yankees won 3 championships but lost to the Braves head to head for 14 straight years outside of the playoffs. The Braves won the 1995 World Series and dominated the whole decade!
Update 2: The truth is the Braves beat the Yankees the most times head to head like they beat every team the most times head to head but in the playoffs they often lost to teams that they dominated in the regular season. The Braves won the 1995 World Series and they dominated every baseball team they played for 14 straight... show more The truth is the Braves beat the Yankees the most times head to head like they beat every team the most times head to head but in the playoffs they often lost to teams that they dominated in the regular season. The Braves won the 1995 World Series and they dominated every baseball team they played for 14 straight years. The Atlanta Braves were are and always will be the team of the 90s! It's a proven fact!
Update 3: The Braves beat the Yankees in 97 and beat them in 1999 until 2005, after 2005 the Braves playoff run ended. The Yankees have won a lot those games against a mostly rookie rebuilding NL team but the Yankees always beat the Marlins in interleague play and yet the Marlins destroyed the Yankees in the 2003 World... show more The Braves beat the Yankees in 97 and beat them in 1999 until 2005, after 2005 the Braves playoff run ended. The Yankees have won a lot those games against a mostly rookie rebuilding NL team but the Yankees always beat the Marlins in interleague play and yet the Marlins destroyed the Yankees in the 2003 World Series and the Marlins humiliated the Yankees in 2003. The Yankees usually beat the Diamondbacks but the Diamondbacks still defeated the Yankees in the World Series.
Update 4: It's not about one series in October. It's about 14 consecutive years of the Braves dominating the whole sport. The Yankees were unable to win 14 straight division championships and they were unable to go to the playoffs for 14 straight years like the Braves. The Braves are the only team of the 1990s!
Update 5: This was the start of MLB baseball not being mainstream to Americans because of bias umpiring and steroid era use of steroids blew relationships for over 20 years with Middle America and African Americans that embraced the Braves.

The World Series ratings after that lost to TV sitcoms and pro wrestling of the late 90s and regular season football games.
Update 6: The umpiring was biased towards the Yankees in 1999 World Series. Black America and Middle America saw this and baseball got to hockey levels in popularity that even White kids started playing soccer more than baseball.
Update 7: After this World Series, Black people in the Black Mecca of Atlanta understood how baseball at that time felt about cities like Atlanta and how MLB baseball felt about Black Americans in general and people of color so the higher ratings went to the NFL and NBA and Black youth began going there instead of baseball.
Update 8: This World Series showed that MLB at the time favored the big market instead of Middle America and that they did not embrace Black America and the team that Black America embraced so baseball got its ratings from older White viewers and from the New York area off the northeast and White kids in Middle America began... show more This World Series showed that MLB at the time favored the big market instead of Middle America and that they did not embrace Black America and the team that Black America embraced so baseball got its ratings from older White viewers and from the New York area off the northeast and White kids in Middle America began playing soccer and the World Series games lost in the ratings to regular season NFL games and TV sitcoms that still valued Middle America and Black America.
Update 9: We saw how MLB felt about us. The umpires should have worn Klan masks. I guess these guys forgot all about the national leagues Jackie Robinson and and about Atlanta's Hank Aaron and that Black America's team is always Atlanta the Black Mecca and how White Middle America embraced the Braves on Super Station... show more We saw how MLB felt about us.

Update 10: KaleyK, The Braves did not blow their chance. The racist umpires called the Yankees safe in game 3 on a base play or the Braves would have been up 3 to 0 in the 96 Series. That's why Blacks and people of color stopped watching baseball. The White good ole boy no hair wearing anti hip-hop prep boy Yankees were... show more KaleyK, The Braves did not blow their chance.

The White good ole boy no hair wearing anti hip-hop prep boy Yankees were given that World Series by the racist umpires that did not want Black people in the Black Mecca of Atlanta to win another World Series.
Update 11: That's why racist Fox sports said this is a war in 1996. The Braves represent the Brave middle American soldiers, the poor and middle class Whites, the Native Americans, the blacks and people of color. The Yankees represent the Evil Empire. The rich white prep boys in Wall Street. It was a war against people of... show more That's why racist Fox sports said this is a war in 1996. The Braves represent the Brave middle American soldiers, the poor and middle class Whites, the Native Americans, the blacks and people of color. The Yankees represent the Evil Empire. The rich white prep boys in Wall Street. It was a war against people of color. Black people and Hip-hop saw that World Series as an attack against people of color and against our culture.
Update 12: We came back in 1999 but saw the Baseball still did not want Colored Folks. So Baseball games became attended by mostly White older Yankees loving kind of people and the youth went to other sports. The Braves and Yankees used to be stadiums full of Black fans and today it's more Lilly white than ever before.
Update 13: In Atlanta in 2018 The 2018 Braves made some noise and Blacks and Latinos came to support them in last year's playoffs but most Black Americans treat baseball with suspicion. MLB fircsime reason had something against Atlanta because It was a Black American city but if Atlanta was in lilly white Kansas the... show more In Atlanta in 2018 The 2018 Braves made some noise and Blacks and Latinos came to support them in last year's playoffs but most Black Americans treat baseball with suspicion. MLB fircsime reason had something against Atlanta because It was a Black American city but if Atlanta was in lilly white Kansas the Braves would have probably won 3 or 4 World Series.
Update 14: I think the bias umpiring against Atlanta was because MLB did not want a bunch of Hank Aaron loving Black people at their games in every town cheering the Braves. They have worked hard to make the Braves as white and suburban as possible before they let the Braves win a World Series.
Update 15: I went to a Yankees vs Braves game in 1998 where the Braves won and all the Blacks were cheering for the Braves and wore Braves hats. MLB was bothered by the Black Hiphip culture that supports Atlanta music and Atlanta sports. These days they is a lot less Blacks at Yankee stadium. That was done for a reason.... show more I went to a Yankees vs Braves game in 1998 where the Braves won and all the Blacks were cheering for the Braves and wore Braves hats.

It's racism simple and plain!
Update 16: What Alice said and in addition, all you Yanjkee fans are a White Supremacist retarded mother ******* assholes! You only defended the Yankees of the 90s because you support steroid use and you hate Blacks and people of color and the you knew the Yankees were anti Black and anti people of color and anti Minorities.... show more What Alice said and in addition, all you Yanjkee fans are a White Supremacist retarded mother ******* assholes! You only defended the Yankees of the 90s because you support steroid use and you hate Blacks and people of color and the you knew the Yankees were anti Black and anti people of color and anti Minorities. You troll my posts because you defend White supremacy and you even hate the race and color of the Yankees players that were Black and Latino.
Update 17: You embarrass yourself because of your stupid hatred and the hatred of the umpires is the reason most Black people hate the Yankees and even white kids stopped watching baseball. I bet you also defend Hitler because like you did the Hitler loving empires.
Update 18: You just post because you are a White Supremacists and in the name of White Supremacy which is why the umpires in 1996 took away the chance of the Braves being up 3 to 0 over the Yankees because they did not want to see a Black American city become the World Champion again in sports. 1995 was a token championship... show more You just post because you are a White Supremacists and in the name of White Supremacy which is why the umpires in 1996 took away the chance of the Braves being up 3 to 0 over the Yankees because they did not want to see a Black American city become the World Champion again in sports. 1995 was a token championship for the Black Mecca of Atlanta. They did not want that again. I can guarantee you are involved in the Ku Klux Klan or in a White supremacist militia. Your posts show us that.
