Braves executive: Entire region will benefit from Braves move

ATLANTA — The entire Atlanta area will benefit from the Atlanta Braves’ relocation to Cobb County from Downtown Atlanta, an executive vice president told a business organization.

“We’re excited about what Opening Day (2017) represents for us,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted Derek Schiller as saying. “It’s a galvanizing project … we believe for the entire region. This should not be about Cobb County; it should not be about Atlanta. It’s about the entire area. It’s about embracing the entire area. We hope this project will attract everybody.”

Schiller spoke to the Buckhead Business Association.
