4 ways to enjoy the Braves during offseason

The Falcons are not playing good football these days. UGA is losing a coach.

Fill the sports void by spending some time with the Atlanta Braves during the offseason when you take a tour of Turner Field and visit the Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Museum & Hall of Fame.

April 7, 2014 - Atlanta - New exhibits in the stadium’s Braves museum include Braves-in-Cooperstown displays.  Forty years ago Tuesday night — April 8, 1974 — Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s career home run record by hitting No. 715 over the fence in left-center field at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. New exhibits in the stadium’s Braves museum include displays celebrating the 40th anniversary of Aaron’s No. 715 and the 100th anniversary of the (Boston) Braves’first World Series championship in 1914. A Braves-in-Cooperstown display will honor 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductees Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux. Ground crew members kept the infield covered in advance of Tuesday's season home opener at Turner field in Atlanta.   BOB ANDRES  / BANDRES@AJC.COM

How about laughing at the dumpster fire front office moves? That's been pretty entertaining this "off season".
