The Gwinnett Braves are the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, and are in the International League. On January 14, 2008, it was announced that the Richmond Braves would move from Richmond, Virginia, to Gwinnett County, Georgia beginning in 2009. The announcement was made after the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners unanimous vote.
The Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted a groundbreaking ceremony commemorating the start of construction on the ballpark for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves baseball team.
The ballpark, Coolray Field, is a state of the art facility that reflects a historic look and feel. It provides an intimate setting with a total capacity of 10,000, and ultimately serves as the focal point of a mixed-use entertainment district.
Logos and uniformsEdit
The official colors of the Gwinnett Braves are navy blue and scarlet, the same as their Atlanta parent. The primary logo resembles the Atlanta Braves primary, but with silver outline and with the word "Gwinnett" centered above.
The home jersey has the classic Braves' wordmark centered on the front, with the "Gwinnett" underscore underlining it. However, unlike Atlanta's jersey with navy blue and scarlet piping, the Gwinnett team's jersey features scarlet sleeves with blue stripes. Other uniform apparel has yet to be revealed.
