Ted Turner

You have to love Ted Turner, known as the “Mouth of the South” and the owner of the Atlanta Braves.

After an error in a game on May 31, 1976 sets up a six-run rally for the Padres in the eighth inning, Turner invites the 2,994 fans watching the Braves lose to San Diego, 10-7, to come back the next night as his guests.

Turner had a certain flair. And he knew it was all about the fans. And they became extremely loyal.
