Atlanta Braves Plan Move To Cobb County In 2017 | WABE 90.1 FM

Former Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner, whom the current Turner Field is named after, says he hopes the Braves, “will be happy in their new location and continue their winning ways.” Also in his statement, Turner has not been involved with the team’s decision making since 2001.

Here’s his full statement:

“It is my understanding that the Atlanta Braves announced their plan to move from Turner Field to a new stadium in Cobb County. When Time Warner merged with AOL in 2001, the Atlanta Braves were part of the merger package, and later acquired by Liberty Media Corporation. I am no longer part of the company and have not been involved in the decision making since 2001. I just hope the Braves will be happy in their new location and continue their winning ways.”

Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the league “fully supports” the Braves’ plans to move to Cobb County where they’ll build a new stadium.

Here’s the full statement:

“The Braves have kept us apprised of their stadium situation throughout this process. Major League Baseball fully supports their decision to move to a new ballpark in Atlanta for the 2017 season, and we look forward to their continued excellence representing their community, both on and off the field.”
