Truist Park

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Truist Park, originally known as SunTrust Park, is a baseball stadium in a section of Cobb County, Georgia that has an Atlanta mailing address. It is the home of the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB). It replaced Turner Field as the home of the Braves.

During the stadium's planning process, it was named SunTrust Park when the Braves reached a naming agreement with the Atlanta-based SunTrust banking company.[1] In February 2019, SunTrust merged with another banking company, BB&T, and the new company renamed itself Truist. However, the ballpark kept the SunTrust name through the 2019 season.[2] The new name of Truist Park became official on January 14, 2020.[3]
