This day in baseball: Braves changes

On January 26, 1957, Joe Cairnes became president of the Braves, replacing Lou Perini.  Perini would best be remembered as the man who moved the Braves from Boston to Milwaukee in 1953, citing financial losses and poor attendance.

    Great timing. The Braves won the 1957 World Series. Great way for a president to start.
