    Offseason

    Regular season

    On August 6, umpire Jerry Dale ruled that Braves shortstop Rafael Ramírez did not step on second base while turning a double play. Manager Bobby Cox argued the call and confronted Dale while tobacco juice streamed out of his mouth. Cox was accused of spitting on the umpire.[3]

    Phil Niekro became the only pitcher in the history of the National League to lead the NL in losses for four consecutive seasons.[4]
