A pedestrian walks down the street with Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves baseball team, in the background Tuesday in Atlanta. The Braves unexpectedly announced Monday they are moving in 2017 to a new stadium about 10 miles from downtown in suburban Cobb County. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said Tuesday that the city will demolish the stadium after the team leaves. "We're going to have a master developer that is going to demolish the Ted and we're going to have one of the largest developments for middle-class people that the city has ever had," he said, referring to the stadium's nickname.
