The 1999 Atlanta Braves season marked the franchise's 34th season in Atlanta. The Braves won their eighth consecutive division title with a 103-59 record and 6 game lead over the New York Mets. The Braves appeared in the World Series for the fifth time during the 1990s. The Braves lost all four games of the 1999 World Series to the New York, resulting in a dominant sweep. The Braves suffered their 2nd World Series elimination to the Yankees in 4 years. The first being in 1996 in six games.
Two key players on the 1999 Braves was Chipper Jones, who won the National League's Most Valuable Player award with a .310 average, 45 HRs, and 110 RBIs. Jones sealed the award with his September heroics against the New York Mets. The second player was John Rocker, who recorded 38 saves as Atlanta's closer but later created controversy due to his racist and homophobe comments in a December 27, 1999, Sports Illustrated article.
