The Atlanta Crackers celebrated a 1947 LBL Championship, followed by a seven-game triumph in the first-ever "Super Series" over the Myrtle Beach Hurricanes of the Jackie Robinson Memorial Baseball League. The Atlanta Crackers are an original member of the Legends Baseball League, an APBA draft league which began with the 1946 season. The Crackers are named after the Southern League team which made its home at Ponce de Leon Park in Atlanta, GA until 1964. Ponce de Leon Park used to stand across the street from the old Sears building on Ponce de Leon Blvd. The magnolia tree which stood in center field is still there.
