"Except Gwinnett is about 30 minutes from Atlanta. Who would want to go to a AAA game when you could drive 30 minutes and go to a major league game."
Then why did the Braves sell this project to the people of Gwinnett? It was/is a pig in a poke, just like the project that is proposed for Wilmington. They also sold out the people that they took the team away from in Richmond. The Braves only have "their" best interest at heart and could care less about the people they trick into funding their stadiums. If they were required to pay for their own stadiums, they would be less likely to move every time the wind blows.........Richmond could/will be the blueprint of what will happen here..........Actions speak louder than words......Atlanta only cares about Atlanta, regardless of what others have invested!
