Cobb County officials said Thursday the public will be responsible for roughly 45 percent of the cost. The Braves will be contributing about 55 percent, or $372 million.
Bucking the trend of teams pushing for stadiums and arenas closer to the city center, the Braves are moving from a site just south of downtown that has been their home since the team moved to Atlanta from Milwaukee in 1966.
Turner Field had a signature moment right at the start _ a trembling Muhammad Ali emerging from the shadows to ignite the flame that opened the 1996 Summer Olympics. In the years that followed, the Atlanta Braves hosted many memorable events of their own, from the World Series and All-Star game to the farewells of Bobby Cox and Chipper Jones.
