Built in 1996 at a cost of $250 million, Turner Field is the current home of the Atlanta Braves. The park was constructed to host the 1996 Summer Olympics and originally seated 85,000 for the Games, with extra bleacher seating forming the stadium's oval. Ironically, it was not used for the Olympic baseball competition, which took place in nearby Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. After the Games, the bleachers were removed, and the stadium was completed in time for the 1997 season.
The park replaced Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which has since been memorialized in the form of a wall (representing the stadium's former location) around a parking lot adjacent to the current stadium. Turner Field was renamed after colorful media mogul Ted Turner, who is a former owner of the team.
