Turner Field Atlanta Reviews
Nice place for baseball Jul 01, 2011
Originally built as an Olympic Stadium for the 1996 Summer Games, it was converted to a baseball-only stadium once the Games ended. And the Braves moved into Turner Field, at the start of the 1997 baseball season. The only thing remaining from their previous stadium, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, is the outfield wall, which is now on a parking lot for Turner Field.
You can catch the Braves shuttle bus, right outside of Underground Atlanta, which is free, and takes you to the ballpark.
The site of multiple division titles in the 90’s and early 2000’s, the Braves have quite a history at this place. There is a museum inside the ballpark, the Braves Hall of Fame. A separate review about that, can be read here.
Other features include the sculptures of retired numbers, plaques of famous Braves, statues of a few players, among others.
One major drawback, is that the box office closes after the 7th inning (I’m guessing), which can be a problem if you want to watch the entire game and not pay that fee for buying tickets online. And trying to buy before the start of the game can be difficult, since the line can be long.
Sitting at the upper deck in the shade is a must in the summer, which is on the left field or 3rd base side. Plus you get a good view of downtown from there.
It is a nice place to watch a ballgame, and not pricey at all. And if you go to a Friday night game, you may get to see some fireworks.
