Directions: The Braves don't play at Fulton County Stadium anymore. In fact, the structure doesn't exist. It's a parking lot for Turner Field. The best way I got to Fulton County was by taking the MARTA. For more information on the MARTA, visit their website MARTA.

General Area in State: North central Georgia. A 2 1/2 hour drive southwest of Greenville, SC; about two hours south of Chattanooga, TN; 4 hours east of Birmingham, AL.

Host Hotel: Visit the Atlanta Braves website www.atlantabraves.com" target="_blank" for a list of hotels in the area. Choose the Turner Field link on top of page, then select the Area Information from list on left side of page.

Personal Notes: I enjoyed Fulton County Stadium. I liked going to games there better than to Turner Field. I can't quite figure out the reason. Perhaps it was because the stadium was one of those circular ones. Or, it wasn't quite as congested as Turner Field. Maybe because I saw Steve Avery hit a home run. Am thrilled when pitchers do that. I miss the stadium.

I sat in a variety of different areas at Fulton County. Way up in the Upper Deck on a hot Saturday afternoon. My friends loved me for those seats. On the third base side. Up behind the home plate. Those were probably the best.
