Stealth in the Deep South
After keeping it quiet for months, the Braves confirmed that they intend to leave Turner Field (left) to move to a new park in the Atlanta suburbs. The City of Atlanta says it can't match the taxpayer outlay Cobb County has promised. Two weeks later, Cobb County Commissioners voted to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Braves. Here's what the project will look like.
You can see the list of all the parks I've visited this year here ... In the November 20th edition of SPORTS WEEKLY, you'll find the culmination of my 30-article series, as we've counted down the 30 MLB parks from worst to first. (The team with the winning ballpark is pretty pleased.) Look for it at newsstands or sign up for a subscription.

Big League ballpark notes
It's hard to tell how serious the request was, but the Nationals apparently asked the D.C. government to build a retractable roof over Nationals Park (left). Pricetag: $300 million ... With the Braves' planned move north into a new ballpark in the suburbs, the City of Atlanta has announced that they will demolish Turner Field in 2017 and re-imagine the site as a development for middle-class housing ... A college football bowl game will be played at Marlins Park starting next year ... An outfit called Yardbarker scrutinized the Yelp ratings of all 30 MLB parks, and used them to rank them from 1 to 30. Check out their results (Wrigley and Kauffman are way too low on their list, and having Yankee Stadium above Citi Field is ridiculous) ... The ad signs you saw adorning the ballparks of the World Series had been meticulously chosen and placed by MLB Corporate Sales & Marketing.
