About the Turner Field:
Originally built for the Summer Olympics of 1996, Turner Field was converted for the Braves in 1997. Guest Relations provides a “First-Time Visitor” Certificate upon an audience members first encounter with the ballpark. You can take a sneak peak of the Braves’ 1995 World Series Trophy or even beat the over-sized “Braves Drum.” Look for the neon-lit tomahawk in the outfield on top of the video board. There is also “Sky Field,” where fans can have the best view of the action. The longest game in Turner Field and in Braves history lasted six hours and thirty-nine minutes resulting in a 4-3 Braves victory in nineteen innings.
