The Atlanta Braves new home will have it’s fair share of perks. Cobb County stadium will be the centerpiece of what is essentially a strip mall and I mean that in the most pleasent of ways. With a strip leading up to the stadium from Cobb Square called “Entertainment Way” one can only imagine the bars, restaurants and shopping that’s sure to make it’s way to Cobb. Although most of us we’re scratching our heads when the organization announced the relocation it seems like a better atmosphere for Chipper Jones to make a few bucks for an appearance at the Entertainment way Cracker Barrel.
A huge perk in disguise for the new stadium is the subtraction of 10,000 seats to hold 41,000 now. Not many people realize the sheer volume of seats Turner held. The Braves we’re always criticized for not filling the stadium, so it’s good to see the suits wising up to a more intimate stadium. Coming in at 1/4 the amount of the new Yankee Museum/Stadium, Cobb County field seems like it’s on the right track to bring an optimal baseball experience to it’s fan base.
