BRAVES LEAVING FORMER OLYMPIC STADIUM

0

ATLANTA: The Atlanta Braves will leave their home ballpark, the former 1996 Olympic Stadium, for a new $672 million (500 million euros) suburban venue after the 2016 Major League Baseball season, the team announced Monday. The stadium where iconic boxing legend Muhammad Ali lit the Olympic torch was renovated after the Centennial Games and scaled down to become the Braves’ home ballpark since 1997. But the team’s 20-year lease with Turner Field expires after the 2016 campaign—the 50th season since the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966.
