Is current excitement level in Atlanta highest it's ever been for Braves?

Steak Shapiro and Drew Butler share their thoughts on the excitement surrounding the Atlanta Braves

Say what you want, but the Atlanta Braves have been the talk of Major League Baseball this season, and deservingly so. Their record-setting season saw the club set the franchise record for single season home runs and still with a chance to tie or set the MLB record for single season balls out of the park. They have also become just the second franchise in MLB history to have five players that will finish the season with 30 or more home runs, tying the 2019 Minnesota Twins and of those players, Ronald Acuña Jr. became the first to reach 40 home runs and 70 stolen bases in MLB history.

“I think this is the most I’ve ever seen this city into baseball, into this team,” 92-9 The Game’s Steak Shapiro said on Thursday, as he and co-host Drew Butler discussed the Braves' historic season. As Shapiro shared with Butler an example of a neighbor’s reaction to attending Tuesday night’s game in which the Braves came from behind to defeat the Cubs, telling Shapiro “that was the greatest night.”

Steak then asked: “Do you think it’s the most that Atlanta has ever been into this baseball team?” Steak explained how talk about the team seems to be everywhere as he goes from schools to business meetings. “It’s just a constant conversation."

“That’s the price of being great,” Butler responded as he explained that with the success of the Braves season has garnered the conversations from whether the team has the pitching strength to pull off a World Series win to all the praise they have received for the historic season.
