The Boston Bees were a short-lived incarnation of the Boston Braves, which lasted from 1936 to 1940. In previous years the team had been known as the Boston Red Stockings, Boston Red Caps, Boston Beaneaters, Boston Doves and Boston Rustlers. At various times in the team's early years, the team was known as either Boston, Bostons or even the Boston Nationals. Starting 1912 and running for almost a quarter of a century, the team was known as the Braves. The team had been losing fans and games in profusion during the 1920s and the first half of the 1930s. Following the team's most disastrous season to date, Braves' President Bob Quinn asked fans to select the new team nickname. The new name was announced on January 31, 1936 as the Bees. Braves Field was renamed National League Park, but would be popularly referred to as the Beehive.
