Turner Field to be converted into college football stadium

Turner Field may have played host to its final Major League Baseball game, but the stadium lives on as a functional sports facility. In a testament to sustainability, the 20-year-old stadium, originally built for the 1996 Summer Olympics before it was converted to a ballpark for the Atlanta Braves, will now be turned into a college football venue for Georgia State University.
