(TSX / STATS) -- Atlanta Braves senior advisor John Hart stepped down from his position to pursue other opportunities outside the organization, the team announced Friday.

Hart was removed as Braves team president on Monday when Alex Anthopoulos was named general manager and executive vice president.
