Last Game in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium
In their 2,431st - and last - regular season game in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, the Atlanta Braves beat the Montreal Expos by a score of 3-1. Former Atlanta mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. - who was instrumental in getting the Milwaukee Braves to agree to move to Atlanta - threw out the first pitch. After the game, ex-Braves appeared in a salute to mark the 31 years the Braves had played in the stadium.
