Clayton Trutor, author of "Loserville:  How Professional Sports Remade Atlanta - and how Atlanta Remade Professional Sports."   In the late 60s and early 70s, Atlanta became the first city in the south to acquire teams from the four major professional leagues: the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL.  The book chronicles how this was accomplished- including Atlanta's successful efforts to woo the Braves away from Milwaukee.
