Editors Note The rip-roaring story of baseball's most unlikely champions From 1949?1958, the New York Yankees won the World Series seven times. And in 1957, the last team anybody would have thought of to challenge New York City's baseball supremacy would have been Milwaukee. But who better to beat the Yankees than the Midwest guys at the corner bar? The Braves became America's team, a happy band where color and the Cold War didn't matter, where the Cold One created the close bond between the fans and the team. Young sluggers Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews proved that brotherhood meant as much as home runs. Legendary pitcher Warren Spahn teamed with Yankee-killer Lew Burdette for a climactic finish. 'Bushville' was ready to strike a blow for the rest of America, and the Milwaukee Braves were about to turn the sports world upside down.
