10 Most Memorable Moments in Turner Field History

On Monday, the Braves shocked the baseball world with the announcement of plans to build a new stadium in the suburbs of Cobb County, Georgia, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. If it feels like Turner Field just opened yesterday, your sense of time isn't that far off from reality.

After just 17 seasons at Turner Field, the Braves are planning to move, citing the need for expensive upgrades to keep the stadium as a tourist attraction and state-of-the-art venue. The necessity to play closer to the heart of the fanbase, per Deadspin, is also a major part of the story.

With plans set on a move in time for the 2017 season, the Braves will play a grand total of 20 seasons at Turner Field. At first glace, that's barely enough time to make a few memories. Yet a deeper dive into the history of Turner Field yields a bounty of memorable moments.

The following list celebrates the best moments in a park that will soon cease to exist. Despite never featuring a World Series winning club, Turner Field has been privy to an amazing amount of history in a short time.
