The Braves boast they are the longest continuously operated franchise in baseball history. Back then it was quite common for a team to change their name, similar to the way minor league teams rebrand themselves these days. Before becoming the Braves in 1912, the team went by several different names:
The Bees would be a fun team name, with many creative possibilities for a new logo, colors, and mascot.
But an earlier name would be the perfect choice for a team in this day and age. With the country mired in division and unrest, with ongoing protests and riots, what better name for a team in 2020 than the Doves - the symbol of peace. A natural for a place that used to be called "the city too busy to hate."
And with a city filled with fowl named sports teams - Falcons, Hawks, the NBA G League College Park Skyhawks, the Kennesaw State Owls, the Shorter University hawks, and North Georgia Nighthawks, Gainesville State Fighting Geese, and the Oglethorpe University Stormy Petrels to name a few - the Atlanta Doves would fit right in.
Whatever happens - new name, no chop, or even no changes - there will be a huge negative response on social media. People love to complain, like when a team signs (or doesn't sign) a free agent, or changes their uniforms - no matter how good or bad a job the team does. They'll get over it.
