The 1996 Summer Olympic Flame Tower was orginally part of the Olympic Stadium. Following the Olympics, the stadium was reconfigured for use by the Atlanta Braves baseball team. Also, the Olympic Flame Tower was moved one block north of the stadium.

look to the left of this flame (flame is in the corner of the braves overflow parking for the baseball stadium)
you will see the outline in the parking deck of the old stadium and zoom in and you will see the 715 marking where Hank Aaron hit his #715 hit to beat Babe Ruth's record.
also notice lines in the parking lot, they have amateur races on the weekends in this parking lot when its empty.
