First Glimpse: The New Cobb County Home Of The Braves

New, 48 comments

[Renderings courtesy The Atlanta Braves.]

The Atlanta Braves have just revealed colorful new renderings of their new OTP home in Cobb County. And despite all the grumbling about the move, Atlantans are awfully curious to take a peek; the images have evidently received so much attention that they have crashed the team's website twice in the last hour or so. The new ballpark will seat 41,500 fans (Turner Field seats 50,096) and, according to the Braves, will put a higher percentage of seats closer to the field than any other Major League Baseball stadium. The 90-foot roof and air conditioning on every level will provide a break from the sun. The property features 6,000 parking spots, with thousands of additional spots available in existing nearby lots. So far, the online reactions to the renderings are mixed, which was always going to be the case unless they simply released "renderings" of a massive banner reading, "We're staying at The Ted!"
