Braves players received many more accolades for what was truly a historic season for the franchise and league by some players and the team as a whole. Ronald Acuna was named to both the first team All-MLB, and won the NL Hank Aaron award for best offensive player. He made a clear intentional effort at the ceremony to honor the franchise legend that the award is named after, which is a nice touch for the franchise legend-in-the-making. Austin Riley and Spencer Strider were also included in the first team All-MLB, while Matt Olson and Ozzie Albies landed on the second team. That the Braves had five inclusions, as well as the age and contract status of them is a testament to both how special their 2023 was and how incredible this core of players is to have for the next number of years.
