The team and its new SunTrust Park will share top billing in its 60-acre complex with The Battery Atlanta, the mixed-use development that will include restaurants, bars, shopping, apartments, a four-star hotel and a concert hall. The Braves believe their complex will be a model used when other teams look to build new parks. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)

The entrance to SunTrust Park, the Atlanta Braves' new baseball stadium stands against residential units under construction in Atlanta, Wednesday, March 29, 2017. The big "B" on the sign at the entrance to Atlanta's new baseball park doesn't stand for Braves. That's appropriate, because the team and its new SunTrust Park will share top billing in its 60-acre complex with The Battery Atlanta, the mixed-use development that will include restaurants, bars, shopping, apartments, a four-star hotel and a concert hall. The Braves believe their complex will be a model used when other teams look to build new parks. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
