Opened April 10, 1971

Atlanta Fulton County Stadium:

Broke ground April 15, 1964
Opened April 12, 1966

Pleeeeeaaazzzeee...

Yeah, but did Fulton-County have it's own on-site court room and jail?

I think not.

I attended one game at Fulton County Stadium in 1984. Chris Chambliss got his 2000th hit that night. I'm from Phillie so I knew Veteran's Stadium pretty well. I thought Fulton County was pretty similar. A bit smaller and a bit older. Both stadiums were showing their age by 1984. Did they blow up Fulton County Stadium like they did the Vet?
