In case you missed it, the Atlanta Braves are getting a new home in 2017 – SunTrust Park!
The recent Grand Opening event was an exciting moment in history for our hometown franchise, who is moving from their old stomping grounds in downtown Atlanta to suburban Cobb County. Important figures in Braves history, such as Hank Aaron and Bobby Cox were in attendance for the celebration, as well as members of the media covering it in-depth.
To provide historical context, the Atlanta Braves are the oldest continuing operating franchise in Major League Baseball and it will be the first time they’ve had a corporate sponsor for their stadium – we believe that Suntrust is a perfect match.
Event Rentals Unlimited and our sister company, Tents Unlimited, were honored to be a part of this ground-breaking ceremony for our hometown team. Our inventory played an instrumental role for the event – from tables, chairs and staging to a climate-controlled tent with flooring and temporary power. It was great to facilitate the requests the Braves made but to also see the excitement growing around this franchise first-hand. The excited was contagious!
The first playing season at the new park will be 3 years from now but that doesn’t diminish the anticipation. The Braves are the youngest team in the MLB and are loaded with talent. They’ve made the playoffs two out of the last 3 years and are hungry for a World Series. Before you know it this young team will hop over to their new state-of-the-art stadium and host large-scale games… but we’ll always remember the humble ground-breaking beginnings at the Grand Opening event!
