Turner Field

Capacity: 50,097     Opened: 1997

 

Have your arm ready to go for the Tomahawk Chop when you head to Turner Field. This is ATL after all- don’t disrespect it.

 

What makes this stadium unique?

Turner Field treats fans to more than just a baseball game- it’s a full-on baseball experience. Tailgating, a rarity in MLB, is permitted before the games in official Turner Field parking lots. The Grand Entry Plaza is alive with live entertainment and Scouts Alley, where fans can test their baseball skills. A photograph of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run ball overlooks the Plaza from the Plaza-side scoreboard, perfect for photo ops. The stadium is overflowing with Braves’ history- visit the Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Museum and Hall of Fame ($2 entry), the Braves’ Walk of Fame, and Monument Grove. During the game fans tomahawk chop along with the 27 foot long neon tomahawk and the Chick-fil-A chopping cow. Looking for the ultimate fan treat? Try the Braves VIP Batting Practice Experience and watch batting practice on the field.
