          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).
