Truist Park

SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have revealed the new name for their stadium in Cobb County.

The announcement to call the new stadium "Truist Park" was made Tuesday morning at the ballpark near Smyrna.

The stadium has been called SunTrust Park since it opened in 2017.

Atlanta-based SunTrust later merged with Charlotte, North Carolina-based BB&T to create a bank known as Truist.

The naming rights will be in place for the next 22 years.
