Map Shows Why the Braves Plan to Move to Cobb County

heat-map

As the Marietta Daily Journal first reported this morning, the Atlanta Braves intend to move from Turner Field (which they've played in since 1997) to Cobb County when the team's lease expires after the 2016 season.

And as shown by the diagram above, the relocation will make the Braves more accessible to a greater proportion of their ticket buyers. Hopefully the $450 million the taxpayers are footing will make it worth the shorter drive.
