The 2000 season would mark the first time since 1990 that the Braves did not appear in the National League Championship Series. One of the highlights of the season was that the All-Star Game was held at Turner Field in Atlanta.

All-Star game

The 2000 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was played in Atlanta. It was the 71st midsummer classic featuring the American League (AL) and National League (NL). The game was played on July 11, 2000 at Turner Field.

Five members of the Braves were part of the All-Star Game. Andrés Galarraga and Chipper Jones started at first base and third base, respectively. Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Andruw Jones were part of the team as well.

The 2000 All-Star Game was one of the few occurrences in which the manager of the host team also managed the home team of the game, in this case, the National League (Bobby Cox had led the Braves to the World Series the previous year earning the right to manage the National League). The final score was 6-3 for the American League.
