As we determined a few days ago, your love affair closely parallels mine.

I was also six years old and vividly remember watching the Braves win the 1957 series in seven games against the hated Yankees, the heartbreak of 1958 losing to those same Yankees and then the disappointment of 1959 tying for the NL championship with the Dodgers and losing a two game playoff.
However, the following season I experienced one of my greatest thrills as a kid. My dad, my uncle and I were at Milwaukee County Stadium to see Lew Burdette pitch a no-hitter against the Phillies. It was almost a perfect game as the only batter to reach base was HBP.
When the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966 it coincided with my family moving to Augusta, GA that same summer. My love affair with the Braves has continued ever since.
