Turner FieldThe Atlanta Braves are one step closer to moving away from Atlanta.

A crucial vote passed Tuesday night, which directs $300 million in taxpayer dollars to the development, and paves the way for the Braves move from downtown Atlanta to the northern suburbs, the Cobb County Commission said.

This vote comes just two weeks and a day after the Braves made the stunning announcement that the team was moving from downtown Atlanta.
