Baseball fans upset at the idea of Cobb County as the new home of the Braves, have taken to Change.org to vent.
A petition launched by Lindsay Cronk, a librarian who lives in Midtown, reads in part:
"Turner Field, which will be only 20 years old at the time of the move, is in excellent condition and a central location to the City of Atlanta. Abandoning the Ted is a willfully wrong-headed decision that will result in an eyesore for the city as well as insult and injury to all Atlanta area fans. Join me in telling Braves ownership that this move is unacceptable. Keep the Braves at Turner field and do right by Atlanta's fans. Signing this petition will send a message to Braves leadership, and we may still be able to undo this disastrous plan which will have far reaching consequences for the Atlanta metro area."
So far more than 1,500 people have joined her.
(We received a more complete statement from Cronk, and it is now posted in the comments section below).
