Walkers pass along an area where a new stadium will be built for the Atlanta Braves baseball team. The Braves announced Monday they are leaving Turner Field and moving into a new 42,000-seat, $672 million stadium about 10 miles from downtown in 2017. Atlanta's mayor said the city wasn't willing to match an offer from suburban Cobb County worth $450 million in taxpayer funding.

ATLANTA — Turner Field had a signature event right at the start -- a trembling Muhammad Ali emerging from the shadows to ignite the flame that opened the 1996 Summer Olympics.
