Gulf Coast League Braves


Gulf Coast League Braves

The Gulf Coast League Braves are the Rookie Level minor league baseball affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. The team plays at the Walt Disney World Resort at Champion Stadium at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex.

The team is composed mainly of players who are in their first year of professional baseball either as draftees or non-drafted free agents from the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and other countries.

In 2003, the Gulf Coast Braves won a best-of-3 series to defeat the Gulf Coast Pirates and become the Gulf Coast League champions. They did not make the playoffs in 2006.

The team traces its history to the earliest days of "complex-based" baseball. Initially based in Sarasota, Florida, it was a member of the short-lived Sarasota Rookie League (1964) and Florida Rookie League (1965), and was a charter club in the Gulf Coast League when it formed in 1966. The GCL Braves have operated from 1964-67 and continuously since 1976.[1]
