ATLANTApix: Giant Baseballs at Turner Field

Giant Baseballs at Turner Field

Turner Field is one of the most gracious baseball fields I've ever been to. Even before you enter the ballpark, there's lots to see and do, including making some great souvenir photos with a field of giant baseballs!

The plaza just outside the main gate, at the north end of the Field, is where one may purchase tickets to a game(s), enter the Braves Museum & Hall of Fame, see a multitude of statuary featuring baseball greats, and a lot more.

Buy a ticket to a game and you get to enjoy quite a bit more in the Grand Entry Plaza. That's where the 100-foot diameter photograph of Hank Aaron's actual 715th home run ball serves as a siren (of the Greek mythology sort) to lure baseball fans and baseball-curious alike to Braves Country.

The giant baseballs are just as much fun as they are big...Turner Field, you've hit a home run with this tourist!

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
