FILE - This is a March 29, 1997 file photo of baseball fans as they fill the stands as the Atlanta Braves play an exhibition game against the New York Yankess, the first baseball game ever to be played in the new Turner Field in Atlanta. Converting the Olympic Stadium to a baseball park helped to keep the Braves in downtown Atlanta. For athletes and spectators at Sochi, it’s time to pack up. But for the host cities, the real challenge begins with the end of the Olympics. How do they continue to use the expensive stadiums after the party’s over? What happens to the athletes’ villages? What is the legacy of the games? After the 1996 games, the Olympics stadium was converted into Turner Field, the baseball stadium that’s been home to the Atlanta Braves for the past several years (AP Photo/Ric Feld, File)
