No one knows at this point when a baseball game will be played there, but Truist Park has new grass on the field and a new sign atop the scoreboard/video board.
The Braves said Wednesday they have replaced their home stadium’s grass with new sod. The field had looked barren and beaten-down in places after 800 tons of manufactured snow and a 15-story-tall steel ski-jump structure were placed on it for a “Big Air” skiing and snowboarding event in December.
Braves CEO Derek Schiller said earlier this year that the resodding was planned before the snow event. He noted that the Braves also replaced the paspalum grass on their field before each of the past two seasons.
A new Truist Park sign is now in place atop the scoreboard/video board beyond center field, the stadium’s most prominent interior signage. It replaced the SunTrust Park sign that had topped the scoreboard for the ballpark’s first three seasons of operation.
In the new sign, the words “Truist” and “Park” are separated by the bank’s new logo.
The stadium’s name change was announced in January after the merger of SunTrust and BB&T to form Truist. Since then, workers have been in the process of removing and replacing about 150 signs in and around the stadium.
