The Atlanta Braves certainly dropped a bombshell this week announcing plans to move to Cobb County with the development of a new stadium planned to be completed in time for the 2017 baseball season.
The new location will be between Cobb Parkway and I-75 and Windy Ridge Parkway and Circle 75 in the Smyrna Vinings area.
The Braves management indicated that “the new location will give us the opportunity to develop the surrounding area of the new ballpark, transforming it into a mixed use, 365-day destination and creating an enhanced atmosphere for our fans during Braves games. There also will be significantly increased access to the site, enhanced parking opportunities, and, generally, easier access to and from major roadways with a variety of other transportation options.”
What do you think about the Braves in our own backyard? Certainly easier to catch that businessman’s special during the day.
