Ted Turner Attended First Braves Game as Owner
At age 37, Ted Turner attended the Atlanta Braves’ first home game as the team’s new owner wearing an Indian headdress. When introduced to the crowd, Turner burst from his seat and ran to the pitcher’s mound. Unfortunately, his enthusiasm did not spill over to the team, who lost 6-1 to Cincinnati.
