KASTEN DISCOURAGES EFFORTS TO SAVE OLD STADIUM
Published April 13, 1995
Braves President Stan Kasten "discouraged" an effort to save Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, claiming that the team's new lease with the Olympic stadium "would be jeopardized unless the existing facility is torn down" by '97. Kasten's remarks came at a sports promoters meeting where it was acknowledged that the issue of parking, legal contracts, and neighborhood concerns were major obstacles to turning the stadium into a world headquarters for women's sports. The idea to preserve Fulton County Stadium is being pushed by Silver Bullets President Bob Hope, who would have his women's baseball team play their games there (Michelle Hiskey, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/12).
