BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Braves are moving from Turner Field.

The team's official Twitter feed announced on Monday morning the organization plans to build a new stadium in Cobb County and move there by the 2017 season.

The braves have played in downtown Atlanta since 1966. Turner Field opened in 1997 at the conclusion of the Atlanta Summmer Olympic Games.
