Confirmed: Braves Leaving Turner Field After 2016 Season (Posted on 11/11/13 at 8:17 am)
It's only being reported by the Marietta Daily Journal but this is what they have:
quote: The Atlanta Braves are expected to announce today the team plans to relocate to Cobb County with a new stadium being ready for the 2017 season. They will be leaving Turner Field after their 20 year agreement expires at the end of the 2016 season . . . The new stadium will be built near the intersection of I-75 and 285. The current site is under contract and set to close in early 2014.
Would be a good move, IMO. Getting it out of the slums and in to the suburbs. Will be easier for a lot of fans to than the hell that is downtown. This still seems a little bit odd but it kind of makes sense.
