The Braves AAA affiliate could be moving to Gwinnett County:
The Braves will move their Class AAA minor-league team to Gwinnett County, according to two people familiar with the situation.
The Class AAA Richmond Braves, the organization’s highest-level minor-league affiliate, could play in Gwinnett as soon as 2009. The Braves’ three-year contract at the Richmond, Va. stadium, known as The Diamond, expires following the 2010 season. However, there is an option to pull out after each season. The Braves must give notice on or before Oct. 1 each year. The Braves have wanted much-need renovations at the stadium for years.
The people familiar with plans said the Braves would move the team to Gwinnett, in the suburbs north of Atlanta, but was uncertain where it would play.
This would be very cool. Minor league games are fun to watch.
