Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves are set to move into a new ballpark in Cobb County, Georgia, beginning in the 2017 MLB season, and the team released new renderings of the upcoming stadium on Wednesday.    

As seen in this tweet courtesy of New Braves Ballpark on Twitter, the Braves' new digs figure to be state of the art in nature:

New Braves Ballpark also offered a glimpse into how things will look from the stands:

The ballpark will cost an estimated $672 million, according to Maury Brown of Forbes.com.

The Braves have played at Turner Field in Atlanta since 1997, but the ballpark hasn't exactly done justice to the perennial playoff team that has called it home.

Although moving from Atlanta couldn't have been the easiest decision for the Braves, it will likely be worth it if the new ballpark is as awe-inspiring as the sketches suggest.
