1928 Boston Braves season

The 1928 Boston Braves season was a season in American baseball. The team finished seventh in the National League with a record of 50-103, 44½ games behind the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the offseason, Rogers Hornsby was traded to the Braves. It was the second trade in as many seasons for Hornsby, who had been traded to the New York Giants during the previous offseason. Hornsby managed to be the league's most productive hitter. He won his seventh batting title in 1928 with a .387 average, and led the league in on-base percentage (.498, a figure that only Hornsby himself topped among National Leaguers in the 20th century), slugging percentage (.632), and walks (107).
