The Atlanta Braves, right, and the Philadelphia Phillies line the base paths as a giant American flag is stretched across the outfield while the national anthem is played before the start of their opening-day game in Atlanta. The Atlanta Braves are leaving Turner Field and moving into a new 42,000-seat, $672 million stadium complex in Cobb County in 2017. Braves executives John Schuerholz, Mike Plant and Derek Schiller said Monday, that the team decided not to seek another 20-year lease at Turner Field and began talks with the Cobb Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority in July.
