There was a fireworks display following the game. Take all these attractions, add a beautiful, new stadium, a second-place team, and a cloudless night with 75-degree temperature and you’d expect an excellent crowd. It’s not so in Atlanta. There was a crowd of 12,204 the night I attended. Now that figure is misleading. The people of Atlanta and the Southeast like the Braves. You hear the games on radios in cars, stores and even homes with open windows. There are Braves decals and bumper stickers on cars and some pennants are spotted, too. But fans just don’t come out to the ball game. • The amazing thing is that much of the crowd seems to be from out of town. The Braves designate each game as a Community Night and recognition is paid to a city. Large groups attend trom all over the Southeast, which is the way the Braves intended.
