The Atlanta Braves are moving…..down the street

The Atlanta Braves have announced that they're moving! The Atlanta Braves will be moving to neighboring Cobb County and will build a new stadium set to be ready for the start of the 2017 MLB season

The Braves announced to reporters that they have already secured 60+ acres for the project and will work in partnership with Cobb County which will also provide public funds. In a message to fans, Braves executive John Schuerholz explained the move would make it easier for fans to get to and from the games, would offer a better fan experience, and that the current stadium, which they do not own is in need of hundreds of millions of dollars in upgrades. The Braves have played in Atlanta since 1966 and in Turner Field since 1997. Their lease with Turner Field expires in 2016.  I think this is a good move. The city of Atlanta has not improved transportation around the stadium and there are not many options to explore around the stadium. Baseball fans will go to the new location and a new, state of the art stadium may be just what the Braves need to motivate them to a winning season. Your Jersey Girlfriend,  ~Angela Davis
