Ted Turner

In this Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 photo, Ted Turner talks with guests at the Captain Planet Foundation benefit gala in Atlanta. Turner told The Associated Press in a recent interview that when Turner Field is demolished in four years, he hopes the city of Atlanta could turn the vacant area into green space. In November, the Atlanta Braves announced they are moving from Turner Field into a new 42,000-seat stadium complex in Cobb County in 2017. The old stadium, which was named after the 75-year-old media mogul, will be torn down after the Braves leave for their location in the suburbs. Turner, the former owner of the Braves, said he is still trying to fathom the move. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
