Tickets popular for Braves’ last game at Turner Field

Braves fans are making plans to say goodbye to Turner Field.

The Braves put single-game tickets for the 2016 season on sale to the general public Friday, and many buyers immediately gravitated to the last game of the regular season.

By Saturday, Ticketmaster showed no tickets remaining available for the Oct. 2 game against the Detroit Tigers, the last scheduled game at The Ted. But that was amended on the site Monday afternoon to “not many left,” with scattered seats showing up as available in the lower bowl and larger numbers in the upper bowl.

Sales also appeared to be moving briskly for the April 4 season opener against the Washington Nationals, although seats remained available for that game as of Monday morning in numerous sections.

Before the official launch of single-game ticket sales Friday, the Braves had held one-day advance sales on Nov. 30 for “Cyber Monday” and on Jan. 30 for “FanFest.”

The 2016 season will be the Braves’ 20th in Turner Field. The team is slated to move to their new Cobb County stadium, SunTrust Park, in 2017.

Turner Field has about 50,000 seats, while SunTrust Park will have about 41,500.
