Love is in the air as is often the case on Valentine's Day. Because of this, we thought what better time to put together a fun post about some of the most loving relationships we've witnessed between Atlanta Braves teammates over the years. Here are six of our favorite bromances since 2005.

Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuña Jr.

How could you not start with these two? As things go among current Braves, there are a few pairings you could choose from to include on this list. And for good reason, these two have pretty much been joined at the hip since Ronald debuted in 2018.

There's not many players Albies can give the "younger brother" treatment to, but since he is older than Ronald by almost a year, Ozzie loves to give Ronald a hard time. With both these guys signed for years to come, we hope they continue to provide the thunder at the top of the lineup they have already showcased early on in their careers.

Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward

I know, how dare I include two current Dodgers on this list. Regardless of who they play for now, Freeman and Heyward's relationship is simply one of baseball's best. As youngsters they graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and were thought to be future cornerstones in Atlanta.

They put together back to back runner-up finishes in NL Rookie of the Year voting (Heyward in 2010 and Freeman in 2011). Then they were teammates no longer, as Heyward was dealt and Freeman was kept during the Braves rebuild. They would remain close friends even as they weren't teammates. But as fate would have it, last season they both found themselves sporting Dodger blue...gross.

Jeff Francoeur and Brian McCann

Most friendships have their fair share of unforgettable moments. But how many friends can say they were selected in back to back rounds by the same team they grew up rooting for? This was the case for the beloved pair of Jeff Francoeur and Brian McCann, who were the first and second round pick by the Braves in the 2002 MLB Draft.

These two were part of the young exciting 2005 baby Braves that helped capture a record 14th straight division title. They would continue to put together special moments with Atlanta, even after one was past is playing days; As you can see in the video below, with Francoeur's hilarious call of B-Mac's first home run of 2019. Nowadays, Frenchy and B-Mac battle it out on the golf course according to Jeff.
