TURNER FIELD OPENS TO TED'S REVIEWS
Published April 1, 1997
Braves Owner Ted Turner spoke to the media before the first game at Turner Field, according to Tony Fabrizio in the FLORIDA TIMES-UNION. Turner, on the new ballpark: "It's like a biblical story. You're supposed to be humble. Ask and you'll receive and all that sort of thing. Don't gripe about it. But we never threatened to leave or anything, and we ended up with the best stadium around. So I don't know, there might be a lesson there somewhere." Turner, on the high cost of food and drink at Turner Field: "It is outrageous. I'm not sure I won't eat before I come" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 3/31). Braves Dir of Ticket Sales Paul Adams said the team had sold "about" 25,000 season packages, down from last year's figure of 26,000 (AP/Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 3/31).
