| ||Click on the banner to the left to find out if the latest Atlanta weather forecast will affect the baseball score. Or learn how you should dress for today’s Braves game at Turner Field, Atlanta. Turner Field, named after Braves owner Ted Turner, is a baseball-only facility and home to the Atlanta Braves. Built just south of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium in 1996, this $320 million Olympic stadium was retrofitted into an open-air, natural-grass facility. |
Turner Field was the third stadium in history to host the Summer Olympics prior to becoming a major-league ballpark. The old stadium, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, was converted into a parking lot for Turner Field.
The park is almost symmetrical (from left to right, 335/380/401/390/330 feet) with a narrow foul territory. Unlike the Braves' older home, Turner Park plays close to neutral.
ESPN ranks Turner Field #12 offensively. In 2010, Turner Field surrendered a total of 8.39 runs per game for both teams (18th highest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
