It is interesting to note the history of the sports teams known as the Braves and the Redskins. Both were originally named for Boston teams, one baseball and one football, in 1912 and 1933, respectively. The Braves' name derived from an affectionate nickname of a club that the team owner belonged to. The Redskins were renamed in 1933 (they were also formerly known as the Braves) in honor of the team's Native American coach, Lone Star Dietz.
