SunTrust Park aka “The Oil Slick”

STP_LogoConsider this new Braves stadium, SunTrust Park, just a placeholder for the future 2047 home of the Braves in Woodstock. All the media and press and official dignitaries are on hand for the ground breaking of “the oil slick.”

Yep, I’m going to give this new park the nickname, “the oil slick.” That comes from the initials of SunTrust Park, STP. It also relates to the gas line they had to move before they could build the stadium. Though mostly it has to do with the greasing of palms that must have happened within the Cobb County Commission to secretly get the whole endeavor passed.

In honor of this brand new oil slick, here are some photos from a few years ago…when the city built the last stadium.

And of course, the last stadium to outlive its usefulness.
