In 1962, the Single-A Georgia-Florida League announced that it would attempt to make a comeback as a "stripped down" version of its former self featuring only 4 teams…. Thomasville, Brunswick, Moultrie and … Dublin. The all new "Dublin Braves" were assigned to the Milwaukee Braves organization and featured some pretty high quality talents… most notably future slugger Bill Robinson (9 2B, 8 HR, .304) who would go on to hit over 20 HR, four times in his 16 Major League seasons with the Pirates, Yankees and Phillies. Robinson would also go on to become a hitting instructor for the New York Mets and was the 1st base coach when Mookie Wilson's ball went through Bill Buckner's legs in the 1986 World Series. Glen Clark was Dublin's best hitter, knocking in a league leading 26 HR while batting .342. Manuel Samuel meanwhile hit .269 with a league leading 100 Runs scored. On the mound, Alexander Pietrewicz's 14-8, 3.51, 175 Ks led the league in wins and strikeouts. At 68-50 (.576), the Dublin Braves finished in 2nd place but due to it being only a 4 team system, there were no playoffs. It would be Lovett Park's last chance to get a Championship as Dublin's Braves moved to Waycross Georgia's Memorial Stadium the following season bringing an end to professional baseball at this ballpark. In all, Lovett Park would host 10 years of professional baseball and served as an affiliate for the Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates (4 years), Baltimore Orioles and Milwaukee Braves. Lovett Park would produce one future Major League All-Star in Left-Handed Pitcher Steve Barber and one future Hall of Famer in Manager Earl Weaver. This ballpark was torn down we believe around 1980.
