Like your son, I was 6 when the Braves won the WS in 1957. I thought it was

the start of great things to come and, indeed, the Braves reached the series again in 1958 & even took a 3-1 lead. That series didn't end well for the Braves & I was 44 by the time the Braves won it all again. (I watched the clinching win live on the Armed Forces Television Network at a friend's house in Niamey, Niger. Grissom caught the fly that ended that series around 4:30 A.M. in Niamey.)

The World Series goes back to 1903 & the Braves have won it 4 times -- or about every 30 years. So I hope that your son will be able to appreciate better than I could at his age how rare the Braves' feat is.
