Are you ready for some baseball? My family are Atlanta Braves baseball fans. My maternal great-grandfather and grandfather watched the Braves when they were in Boston,MA at South End Grounds. South End Grounds opened on May 16, 1871 and the last game was played on August 11, 1914. In their 44 seasons playing at South End Grounds, the Boston Red Stockings/Beaneaters/Braves won 13 league championships and one World Series.
From 1915 to 1952 the Braves played at Braves Field in Boston, MA. The 43,500-seat ballpark was the largest in America when it opened.
From 1953 to 1965 the Braves played in Milwaukee at Milwaukee County Stadium. County Stadium was the first Major League ballpark built with lights and the first to be completely financed by public funds.
In 1966, the Braves moved to Atlanta, Georgia and to Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. My family attended the first regular-season game at Atlanta Stadium was played April 12, 1966, against Pittsburgh. A sellout crowd saw the Braves lose 3-2 in 13 innings. Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was host to one World Series title (1995), four pennants (1991, 1992, 1995, and 1996) and seven division championships (1969, 1982, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995 and 1996). The last game played at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium was on October 24, 1996.
The Braves moved into Turner Field on April 4, 1997. Turner Field combines the nostalgia and the atmosphere of old-time baseball with state-of-the-art family entertainment unlike that of any other park.
