    So is the thing with Georgia State still a done deal?

    Also, I've now heard that the jumbotron from Turner Field will be reused at the Braves' new stadium (SunTrust Park). Any truth to this?

    I don't think it has ever been more than a proposal and, with two full years of baseball left in it, the proposal is still on the table.

    Is anyone else going to the 7 Line tailgate at the Ted tomorrow?

    Do you think they will finally tear down the delta club box so they will finally be able to enjoy that great downtown view?
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    It looks like they're keeping it.

    Minor trade considering baseball returns to the AFC field. Cool re-use.

    Agreed. And the view of downtown from the ballpark will be outstanding.

    If you mean the view of downtown from the new GSU baseball field, it unfortunately looks like that will be blocked by (1) the very high concrete retaining wall that presently runs around the former AFCS outfield (see posts 15, 95 and 287) and (2) the diagrammed buildings that will be erected north of the field. The only way to overcome this will to be to raise the baseball field a good 50 feet above the AFCS former field and current parking lot level. I don't see that happening.
    As far as the view from the south grandstand of the football field, I share y'all's hopes that the REALLY ugly Delta club box will come down.

    Seems to me that the left field seats can/should be salvaged as endzone seats. What they should do is cut in a bit around the first base dugout area so they can angle the football layout more perpendicular to the third base grandstand and those left field endzone seats.

    There's a Turner Field cameo in the Atlanta tattoo shop ad.

    It's also pretty funny.
