One of the first in on Major League Baseball's new 12-team playoff format, the Atlanta Braves have clinched the NL East and are headed to October baseball. Three division winners and three wild card teams in both leagues will qualify for the postseason, the two division winners with the best records in each league will get a bye and skip directly to the League Division Series round.  The other eight teams will face off in a best-of-three Wild Card Series.

Though the Braves are on pace to have the most home runs in National League history, Opening Day came and went without one. Scoring a home run in 132 out of 148 games this season, the Braves have averaged two homers per game. The Minnesota Twins hold the NL home run record with 307 and this Braves team has 291 at the time of publishing. The Braves are on pace to score 314 runs, further establishing them as the toughest team to beat in the postseason.

Assuming an October filled with Braves baseball, it's time to gear up with the best Atlanta Braves merch and gear.
