Coolray Field not living up to expectations

Steve Vibert, who asked his wife to marry him at a minor league baseball game in Chattanooga, went to about a dozen Gwinnett Braves game this season. But the Suwanee resident said the team has failed to connect with the community, and that tickets are overpriced when there are plenty of other lower-cost entertainment options around.

He used to bring groups of people from church to games with him, but the crowds of 20 dwindled to 10, then they found other things to do.

Attendance at Coolray Field has fallen for the past several years. The team is not bringing in the development that county leaders expected when they approved Gwinnett's minor league stadium. And now, Gwinnett is spending even more tax dollars to cover Coolray's costs.
