The Olympic Stadium for the 1996 Games was built just south of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium and was retrofitted into a baseball ground 1996 and 1997. Grand Entry Plaza, the main entrance to Turner Field, was built after 35,000 seats and part of the track-and-field complex of the Olympic Stadium were removed. Turner Field, the "Home of the Braves" has now become an Atlanta landmark.

What struck me most was the mix of technology and entertainment. At all times, fans are entertained via the BravesVision video board in center field, the PlazaVision board in the Fan Plaza and over 500 television monitors situated throughout the stadium.

Although I didn’t fully understand all the rules, I did enjoy the game, shame the home fans didn’t get the result they wanted.
