according to a couple of really informative websites

http://www.sportsecyclopedia.com/nl/milbraves/milbraves.htmlhttp://www.sportsecyclopedia.com/nl/milbraves/milbraves.html

http://www.milwaukeebraves.info/1953.htm a long down franchise moved to their former  top minor league city where the town was hungry for Mlbs return since the  orignal brewers left after 1901 . The town loved their  Braves andbrave     florished in  their new home  with players like Hank and Eddie Mathews,

and  pitchers like Warren  Sphahn

leading them to  A world championship in 1957

and a pennant 1958

 

they never had a losing record  in their 12 years in WI atendance did dip in the 1960 but was still for the most part good the stadium was  built new for them almost so why the move to thier to farm city of atlanta in 1966 ? All the other relocating had  issuses with sadiums or fanbases that  liked ball game on tv and radio more then being there. Braves have successin  WI and leaving in 12 years is a mystery
