Chief Nokahoma's Teepee (1982)
In 1982, the Atlanta Braves management ordered that Chief Nokahoma's teepee (which was then located on a platform in the field seats) be taken down. The Braves were on a winning streak, and team officials wanted to free up the seats blocked by the large platform. After the teepee came down, the Braves lost 19 out of the next 21 games. Officials then directed that Nokahoma's teepee be erected again, and the Braves went on to win the division.
