None but the Braves book. Interesting to read Tom Glavine’s point of view of the Braves organization. I also learned a few things about the players strike that took place in the early 90’s.

None but the Braves book. Jun 29, 2012 Tim Chavel rated it really liked it. A very good book about one of the great pitchers of the game. The book details Glavine's life as a youngster through his time with the Braves. Some of it deals with his mechanics of pitching but most is about his team, teammates, coaches, mangers, owners, etc.

In a city that had almost given up on the idea of a world championship, pitcher Tom Glavine turned dreams into reality when he pitched one of the greatest games in World Series History. The 1-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians in game six of the 1995 World Series clinched Atlanta's first world championship and made Glavine a hero.

This page contains details about the Fiction book None but the Brave by published in 1901. None But the Braves: A Pitcher, a Team, a Champion by Tom Glavine (1-Sep-1996) Hardcover. This book is the 1439th greatest Fiction book of all time as determined by thegreatestbooks.

Glavine even wrote a book about his time with the Braves (and their World Series win): None but the Braves: A Pitcher, A Team, A Champion. But Glavine has something that neither Smoltz nor Maddux have: a World Series MVP. Glavine’s masterpiece was probably the most memorable game that the Braves have played during their time in Atlanta. Glavine was part of an iconic pitching staff, and will be inducted into the Braves Hall-of-Fame on Friday. Without a doubt, this will just be practice for Glavine’s eventual call to Cooperstown.

This is a very interesting book in the fact that Mr. Glavine gives us a look at the tragic 1994 strike. I had not realized how much he himself had put into bringing things around and how he was not a fan favorite afterwards. Tom is a part of the greatest pitching staffs of all time(the Braves of the '90s) and now he is coming home. Great Forward by the greatest pitcher of all time Gregg Maddux. Not on my top ten list of all time great baseball books but definitely worth a read.
no cover and pretty beat up. its ok
This book got to me really quickly with very fast shipping. The cover looks great and I did not spot any stains or hilights on inside. I have not begun reading yet, but am excited to do so soon.
As a fan of the Atlanta Braves, I jumped at the chance to get a bit more background on one of the most dominating bullpens of our times. This bullpen brought us over five Cy Young awards and a string of divisional championships.
My first thought was that this would be about the Braves. Since this was not quite the case, I felt it would an autobiography about Tom Glavine. Well, both of these are partly true, because the text is more of a series of reflections on his life and baseball. Unfortunately, these reflections don't appear to be in any particular order, which can be confusing for the readers.
We learn about the seasons of the Braves going to the World Series and the one time they won. We read about the strike year and hear it from the point of view of Glavine who was a spokesman for the players union. Glavine shares his brief time in the minor leagues as well as his being drafted to play professional hockey. There are even some stories about famous Atlanta Braves and other players, like when he was supposed to retaliate for a hit batsman, but had a bit of inner turmoil because he would have to plunk Dale Murphy.
Although the book could have gone through another edit, it does have some gems for baseball fans.
To be honest, when I bought this book I barely knew who Tom Glavine was. Of course I lived in Atlanta, and went to a couple of Braves games but after I read this book my concept of Tommy and the Braves changed. The man who always seems so serious is quite funny. You understand the "man" not just the "pitcher". After I read the book, I actually felt like I knew Tom Glavine. I compare this book to the movie Forrest Gump, which is my favorite movie of all time. Like the movie, this book made me feel all my emotions, but it made me laugh hysterical which I truly appreciated. You will have a whole new perspective on the game and the men behind it.
Enjoy, I certainly did.
I must reveal I'm a life long Braves fan. I've rooted for and respected Tommy Glavine since his rookie season pitching for 7,000 people at Fulton County stadium. I enjoyed this book just as I have enjoyed watching Glavine's career.
However, the book doesn't reveal much insight into the Braves or the game of baseball-just Tommy Glavine. It reads like a book rushed to print in order to capitalize on the 1995 World Series MVPship of Glavine; while the marketability of Glavine was high. Its a standard baseball auto/biography. The 3 stars isn't to belittle this book: its an average book getting an average rating.
Comming from a 14 year old Brave Fan, I think this book is GREAT!! I have read this book over and over again, it's just that good!. None But The Braves is by Tom Glavine, a left handed pitcher for the Braves. It tells about his life, family, minor league days, his Major League career and the 1995 World Series(which Atlanta won!). I think this is a great book for any Braves fan, young or old.
I love this book! It is a real page turner. Mr. Glavine says a lot of interesting facts and gives you helpful advise. I highly recommend buying it.
