Turner Field is a baseball park located in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 1997, it has served as the home ballpark to the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB). Originally built as Centennial Olympic Stadium in 1996 to serve as the centerpiece of the 1996 Summer Olympics, the stadium was converted into a baseball park to serve as the new home of the franchise. The Braves moved less than one block from Atlanta–Fulton County Stadium, their home ballpark from 1966-1996.
Opening during the Braves' "division dominance" years, Turner Field has hosted the National League Division Series a total of ten times (1997–2005, 2010); it has also hosed the National League Championship Series four times (1997–1999, 2001), as well as one World Series (1999), one NL Wild Card Game (2012), and the 2000 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
The ballpark was built across the street from the former home of the Braves, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which was demolished in the summer of 1997 and replaced with a parking lot. The parking lot is painted with the field location and configuration of the old ballpark. The section of the outfield wall with the monument marking where Hank Aaron's 715th home run went over it was reinstalled in its original location, and still stands today. From 2002 to 2004, the failed Fanplex entertainment center was located adjacent to the stadium's parking lot. The stadium contains 5,372 club seats, 64 luxury suites, and three party suites.
The most popular name choice among Atlanta residents for the new stadium at the time of its construction (according to a poll in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) was Hank Aaron Stadium. After the ballpark was instead named after Ted Turner, the city of Atlanta renamed the section of Capitol Avenue on which the stadium sits Hank Aaron Drive, giving Turner Field the street number 755, after Aaron's home run total.
1996 Summer Olympics 
The stadium was originally constructed as the 85,000-seat Centennial Olympic Stadium and used for the 1996 Summer Olympics. Immediately after the 1996 Summer Paralympics, which followed the Olympics, much of the north end of the stadium was removed in order to convert it to its permanent use as a 49,000-seat baseball park. The stadium has hosted the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball since 1997, following a multimillion-dollar renovation to retrofit the stadium for baseball by removing the temporary stands that had made up nearly half the stadium and building the outfield stands and other attractions behind them. It was the site of the 2000 MLB All-Star Game.
After the 1996 Olympics were complete the stadium was leased by the Atlanta Braves. Private entities, including NBC and other Olympic sponsors, agreed to pay a large sum of the cost to build Centennial Olympic Stadium (approximately $170 million of the $209 million bill). The Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games (ACOG) sought to build the stadium in a way that it could be converted to a new baseball stadium, and ACOG paid for the conversion. This was considered a good agreement for both the Olympic Committee and the Braves. The 71,228 seat Georgia Dome had been completed 4 years earlier by the state of Georgia, so there was no need for another large stadium in downtown Atlanta. Furthermore, the Braves had already been exploring opportunities for a new stadium. The Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority owns Turner Field and leases it to the Braves, who operate the stadium. The current lease runs through 2016.
Because of the need to fit a track within the stadium in its earlier incarnation, the field of play, particularly foul territory, while not large by historical standards, is still larger than most new MLB stadiums. The fence line around the north main entrance, beyond right field, marks the original extent of Centennial Olympic Stadium.

Stadium firsts 
The Braves began the 1997 season with a three-game road trip. They returned to Atlanta and played their first game at Turner Field on April 4, 1997. The Braves were losing 4–4 in the eighth inning when Chipper Jones drove in the tying run. A Michael Tucker single gave the Braves the lead as they won their first regular season game at Turner Field 5–4.
The first postseason game played at Turner Field was also during the 1997 season between the Braves and the Houston Astros in the National League Division Series. Starting pitcher Greg Maddux pitched a complete game, giving up only one run and leading the Braves to a 2–1 victory. Following a sweep of the Astors, the Braves went on to the National League Championship Series, where Tom Glavine picked up the first NLCS win at Turner Field; however, the Braves lost to the eventual-World Series-champion Florida Marlins.
The first World Series game ever played at Turner Field was Game 1 of the 1999 World Series, where the starting pitcher Maddux and the Braves were defeated 4–1 by the New York Yankees' Orlando Hernández and series MVP Mariano Rivera; the Braves went on to lose the series by a four-game sweep. The only Major League Baseball All-Star Game ever to be played at Turner Field was in 2000. Atlanta's Chipper Jones hit the lone home run in the game, and Braves outfielder Andruw Jones drove in a run as the National League was defeated 6–3.
Turner Field was also home to the first NL Wild Card Game in 2012 between the Braves and St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves were behind 6–3 in the bottom of the eighth inning when Andrelton Simmons hit a fly ball to left field that dropped in between the Cardinals shortstop and left fielder. Umpire Sam Holbrook called Simmons out, citing the infield fly rule. Had an infield fly not been called, Simmons would have been credited with a single and Atlanta would have had the bases loaded with one out. Fans at Turner Field began to litter the field with debris, prompting the game to be delayed for 19 minutes. The Braves lost the game 6–3, ending their season.

|Braves Home Attendance at Turner Field|
Significant renovations to the stadium were put into place for the 2005 season. Among the improvements was installation of a $10 million video display, which was at the time listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest high definition video board. Since then, other stadiums including Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas, the current Yankee Stadium in The Bronx and a horse track in Tokyo have installed larger boards. The current world record is the high-definition video board at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Other renovations in that year included the addition of a 1,080 foot (329 meter) long LED display to the stadium's upper deck, primarily for advertising purposes.
Turner Field's left field vista is dominated by advertising fixtures from two iconic Atlanta corporations. In 2009, a new large Coca-Cola bottle was installed behind left field. Replacing an earlier version made of various pieces of baseball equipment, the new bottle features a HD display around the label, as well as LED lighting. Next to this second iteration of Turner Field's Coca-Cola bottle is a 40-foot (12 m) Chick-fil-A cow, added in 2008. Wearing a Braves hat, the cow does the tomahawk chop along with fans while holding a sign with rotating slogans which tie in to the fast-food chain's successful "Eat Mor Chikin" advertising campaign.
Major League Baseball stadium records 
The longest game by time, and in Braves history, was played on July 26–27, 2011 between the Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates. The game lasted 6 hours and 39 minutes with the Braves winning controversially 4–3 in 19 innings. The Braves' previous longest game by time was 6:10 against the Mets on July 4, 1985, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. 
The most runs scored by either team in a single inning is ten, set on October 5, 2001 between the Braves and the Florida Marlins. The record was set in the first inning of the game. The Braves won the game 20–3.
Premium seating/suites 
- 755 Club: A 24,000 square feet (2,200 m2) area of space rented for special events and parties. The suites may be rented for individual games or for the entire season.
- Delta Sky 360 Lounge: This feature was added in 2010 and is located behind the 755 Club suites on the second level of the ballpark. The lounge may only be accessed by members of the 755 Club.

- Georgia’s Own Credit Union Club and Superior Plumbing Club: The newest club areas of Turner Field consist collectively of 152 premium seats and are located directly adjacent to each side of the press box. The original club, sponsored by Georgia's Own Credit Union and featuring 80 seats, was added to the ballpark for the 2012 season and also contains multiple upscale dining options and in-seat food and beverage services. Instead of stadium seats, patrons face the field in chairs around semicircular tables. A slightly-smaller second section, sponsored by Superior Plumbing and featuring 72 seats, was added for the 2013 season on the opposite side of the press area.
- Club Level: An indoor premium concourse level located on the second deck of the ballpark, this level features multiple VIP suites that may be purchased for individual games and used for party-style affairs, among other events. The Club Level currently has no title sponsor. In previous years, the Club Level has been known as the Lexus Level and Golden Moon Casino Level.
- SunTrust Club: This club is named for the bank holding company headquartered in Atlanta. The club is reserved for official partners and luxury clients of the ballpark. This $6 million addition was completed in 2008 and its 143 premium seats are just 43 feet from home plate, closer than seats in any other MLB ballpark (and closer to home plate that the pitcher's mound). SunTrust Club members also have access to an exclusive club area located under the Hank Aaron Seats (Section 101) that consists of free food and drinks for club members. The club area features a waitstaff that caters to club members in their seats during the games. Members may choose to watch the games from their reserved seats, or they may watch from inside the club itself on high definition televisions.
Other areas and features 
- Coca-Cola Sky Field: Along the Left Field Corner of the Upper Level and sponsored by Atlanta-based Coca-Cola, Sky Field is a large standing room area from which fans can view the game. The area contains a base path which kids can run during the games, as well as an unobstructed view of the downtown Atlanta skyline and the former Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium site. Rising above Sky Field is a giant Coca-Cola Bottle. The original bottle was designed and outfitted with baseball equipment, however a new modern "glass" bottle featuring a video screen replaced the original during the 2009 season. Many of the pieces of the original bottle are now on display at the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta.
- Scouts Alley: Along the field level under the left field seating area, Scout's Alley is an area featuring interactive baseball-themed games targeted at younger fans.Games include pitching cages and batting cages. Balloon and face-painting artists are also located along Scout's Alley. Most attractions require additional payment by tokens, which can be purchased at kiosks within Scouts Alley.
- Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Museum and Hall of Fame: Located along the northwest side at Aisle 134 and serves as the franchise's main museum. Admission to the museum and hall of fame can be purchased at the Braves ticket window. It is open year-round, and serves as the starting and ending point for stadium tours, which are offered to the public on dates when the stadium is dormant and on mornings preceding night games. While the stadium is in use, the museum is featured as a Scout's Alley attraction, and is open to game ticket holders for an additional fee (paid in Scouts Alley tokens).
- Fan Plaza: Fan Plaza (sometimes called Grand Entry Plaza) serves as the primary entrance and exit to the park, and is the hub of pregame and postgame activity at Turner Field. The Plaza is located directly behind centerfield and the jumbotron. The area features the Majestic Clubhouse Store, as well as multiple dining options and drink stands, and the Taco Mac Family Zone (a children's interactive area). The radio pregame and postgame show broadcast location is also located on the Plaza. Prior to select home games, live music is performed in this area.
- Monument Grove: Located outside the gates of the ballpark, but inside the gated perimeter, near the ticket windows, is Monument Grove. Monument Grove features statues of Braves legends Hank Aaron and Phil Niekro (as well as Georgia native Ty Cobb), the "Full Count" sculpture, a bust of Aaron, as well as the six-foot high team baseballs originally used to celebrate the 2000 All Star Game. Every Braves player with a retired number (plus Jackie Robinson) is honored with a large sculpture of the number fashioned after the font used during that player's era. The Braves Walk Of Fame is also housed here, as is the exterior entrance to the Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Museum and Hall of Fame.
- Braves Chop House: The Braves Chop House is a casual dining restaurant located within Turner Field, directly above the Braves' bullpen. Each table in the restaurant is placed to provide a view of the field. On the roof of the Braves Chop House is the "Top of the Chop", a party deck that can be reserved for group outings during games.
- Skyline Tickets: Located on each end of the upper level (along the third base line in section 422L, and above right field in section 437R), the Skyline seats are available for purchase for $1 each, and go on sale at the Turner Field ticket windows two-and-a-half hours before gametime. There is a strict policy of one ticket per person, and entry to the stadium is required immediately after purchase, in an effort to prevent ticket scalping. The price of Skyline Tickets has remained $1 each since the stadium opened in 1997.
Access and transportation 
Turner Field is located in the Southeastern Atlanta neighborhood of Summerhill. It is located on Hank Aaron Drive, which provides multiple parking areas including the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium site which was converted into a parking lot.
Turner Field is also accessible from multiple bus routes near the stadium courtesy of MARTA. MARTA does not offer a direct rail station at Turner Field, however it may be accessed from the Georgia State station on the Blue/Green Line. MARTA also offers a shuttle from Underground Atlanta to Turner Field.
Additional events 
Since 1997, Turner Field has also been used as a concert venue, with capacity of up to 60,000. Among the performers who have performed at the stadium have included the Dave Matthews Band, Eminem, Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones.
Since 2003, the NCAA baseball teams of Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia, which had previously played two games on each school's campus, replaced one of the home and home pairs in favor of a third game at Turner Field. This rivalry game at Turner Field is one of the most attended games in college baseball, with the 2004 game drawing 28,836—larger than that year's College World Series games. Proceeds from this annual match benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Turner Field was also one of thirteen stadiums, and the only Major League Baseball ballpark, chosen to host the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament, which will be played in June 2013. The tournament will mark the ballpark's first soccer match, as Atlanta is currently the largest television market in the United States without a Major League Soccer franchise.
Retired numbers 
There are ten retired numbers on display at Turner Field. The numbers are on display at the Monument Grove section of the ballpark, as well as on display inside the actual stadium. From the time of its opening in 1997 until the 2012 season, the retired numbers were commemorated by the number as pictured below hanging from the facade in left field. These were remove for the 2013 season and replaced with a modern representation of the player's first name followed by their number and last name (such as Dale 3 Murphy), which is located on the left and right sides of the terrace level.
