Turner Field - Atlanta, GA
Home of the Atlanta Braves
Welcome to the Ballpark E-Guides Turner Field Page!
Turner Field in Atlanta is not only a fine venue to watch a ballgame and features a pretty good team, there’s lots to keep you busy besides the baseball on the field if that’s not doing it for you.
Turner Field was part of the Centennial Olympics Stadium built to host the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Afterwards it was torn in half, with the outer half turned into a patio featuring Braves and baseball greatness. Most of the cost was picked up by Olympic sponsors, a nice deal for the residents of Fulton County.
Today the ballpark sits on the footprint of Fulton County Stadium, where Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run to become the Home Run King. The County Stadium spot is now a Braves parking lot, with part of the outfield fence that Aaron’s homer cleared still preserved.
The Braves new home is much finer as a baseball venue, with a brick façade and open air layout. There are blue seats, natural grass and several different kinds of hot dogs. The new ballpark has a Braves Museum, several kids play areas and a popular restaurant in center field, too. Not to mention the very impressive Jumbotron in center field…no picture can do that monster justice.
For some reason, the Braves do not draw as well as most teams of this caliber do. Even during an incredible run of 14 straight division titles, Braves games rarely sold out. Atlanta has never been an easy town for sports teams.
But this is good news for you: Braves tickets can often be had for very cheap, with the Braves offering year long specials and bargains available for many games in the third market. There’s nothing wrong at all with a game at Turner Field, and the Braves’ 2011 September notwithstanding, this is a competitive team.
So as always, Ballpark E-Guides is here to help.
