Chief Noc-A-Homa replaced Big Victor in 1967 and remained in the left field bleachers until August 1982 when the tee-pee was removed for more seating. The Braves went on a losing streak and the tee-pee was reinstalled in September. It remained a fixture until the Braves moved to Turner Field in 1997.
