The Braves' home field has a lot going for it. The skyline of Atlanta -- including Georgia's capitol and the Olympic Flame tower used in the '96 Olympics -- is visible from inside the park. There's the impressive entry plaza beyond center field. The Sky Field area, which is like a park within a park, sits atop the left field stands. Below those stands is Scouts Alley which is an arcade with shops, games and the Braves' Hall Of Fame and Museum. While Turner Field is a delight, I do wish the area surrounding this ballpark wasn't so pitiful.
The panoramic photo above was taken at a playoff game in 2005, back when the Braves were making a habit of playing in the post season.
The picture above, meanwhile, was taken on a beautiful spring afternoon in 2009. It shows that the exterior of the ballpark is really lovely ... if you want to wander around the not-so-great neighborhoods to discover this.
Yes, Atlanta's team has a tremendous winning tradition, and if you want the best seats at Turner Field, click here.
