Warning to Braves 9 manager:
win pennant the first year
ATLANTA (AP) — Some guys who’ve been there before
have some words of advice for the next manager of the At
lanta Braves, whoever he may be.
“Just win the pennant the first year in there,” says
Clyde King, the fifth of the Braves’ six full-time managers
since the team came to town in 1966.
“Get a three-year contract,” says Eddie Mathews, who
preceded King, who preceded Dave Bristol, who was fired
this fall after Atlanta finished last in the National League

West. “Know where you stand, in trades, everything. Get
it in writing,” Mathews said.
Manager No. 7 probably will be announced early next
week, said Braves Director of Player Personnel Bill
Lucas. New York Yankees coach Bobby Cox had been the
apparent frontrunner, but former St. Louis Cardinals and
New York Mets star third baseman Ken Boyer came in for
an interview last weekend and said later, “I got the im
pression it is between Cox and me.”
Bobby Bragan, the Braves’ first manager in Atlanta
and now head of the National Association of Minor
Leagues, said the new manager “has to be his own
man...he has to do it his way.”
Billy Hitchcock managed the Braves in 1966 and 1967
and now is president of the Southern League. He said he
would tell the incoming Braves manager to improve the
team’s defense. Since he can remember, he said, defense
has been the Braves’ downfall.
Luman Harris enjoyed the longest tenure among
Atlanta managers — 1967 to 1972 — and won the West
division in 1969. But when the Braves took a 47-57 record
on the road in 1972, he was fired. He is now living on a
farm near Birmingham, Ala., and could not be reached
Bristol, fired after two years at the helm, is back home
in Andrews, N.C., mulling over job offers from other
teams. He is the only one of the six to say he wanted to go
back to managing — and he even applied unsuccessfully
to be rehired by the Braves after they fired him.
He said the Braves should take a page from the Atlanta
Falcons, a National Football League doormat until this
season and now holders of a surprising 5-4 record.
“The Braves should check up the hall and take note of
what the Falcons did,” he said. “They hired a football
man and got out of his way. Now, it looks as if they’re
turning it around. The Braves should get a baseball man
and let him do it.”
