Ted Turner’s Atlanta Braves Managing Stint

“May 11, 1977: During a 16-game losing streak, Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner sends manager Dave Bristol on 10-day scouting trip and steps in to manage the team. Under Turner, the losing streak reaches 17 games after a 2-1 defeat by the Pirates. ‘Managing isn’t all that difficult,’ insists Turner. ‘Just score more runs than the other guy.'” – John Kuenster in Baseball Digest (Sept. 2007, 21).
