Atlanta Braves begin brand-new ballpark assembly at SunTrust Park
Atlanta( CNN) As Chipper Jones hung out in the Atlanta Braves dugout Friday afternoon, a few hours ahead of the Braves’ first regular-season home competition at their brand-new stadium, SunTrust Park, the future Hall of Famer fielded a question about what fans might be saying as they entered the ballpark for the first time.
“I would venture a guess the word mumbled the most — maybe not even mumbled — would be ‘Wow, ‘” the Braves’ icon said.
“I mean, look at that video timber. Search at the LED light-coloreds, the extraordinary green grass, this incredibly orange clay. They watch how dances wing out of here and they accompany the skyline and everything, and they say, ‘Wow.’ I said it. Everybody else is going to say it . … This is very impressive.”
