A lifelong Atlanta Braves fan, Josh Turner attended his final Braves game at Turner Field in Atlanta on Friday night (Sept. 16) as a guest of the Atlanta Braves organization.
After 20 years, the 2016 baseball season will be the final season the Braves play at Turner Field. The team is moving to SunTrust Park located outside of Atlanta. They are scheduled to play their final regular season game at Turner Field on Oct. 2, 2016, against the Detroit Tigers.
The Braves are holding a countdown of the final home games remaining, allowing special guests to tear away the numbers showing how many games are left. Josh had the honor of tearing down the number 9 (see photo above) indicating that there are only eight home games remaining following Friday’s game at Turner Field.
“It was such an honor for me to go the Braves game this past Friday and to pull down the number nine commemorating the nine home games left at Turner Field,” said Josh in a release. “I’ve had so many good memories there. I’ve introduced all my boys to Braves baseball there. We’ve witnessed some great games and we’ve had a lot of fun times.
“Turner Field will always be special to me,” he continues. “I never got to go to Fulton County Stadium, so ‘The Ted’ is where I made my first Braves memories. I don’t remember the first game I went to there, but all of my children have had their first experiences there too.”
Josh is currently on the road supporting his latest single, “Hometown Girl.”
