First Pitch at Turner Field
Eight months to the day the Games of the 26th Olympiad held their closing ceremonies in Centennial Olympic Stadium the Atlanta Braves played their first game in the transformed Olympic centerpiece. The Chicago Cubs were the visitors for the stadium's inaugural baseball game. The first-ever pitch at Turner Field, captured in this panoramic photo, was thrown by Denny Neagle at 7:47 to the Cubs' Brian McRae, who squared to bunt. This prompted Atlanta's corner infielders (Fred McGriff and Chipper Jones) to charge in from their positions. McRae did bunt and was retired and the Braves went on to open up The Ted with a 5-4 victory.
