Boy Scouts & Baseball
Scout Days with the Braves
We're excited to welcome the Atlanta Braves to their new home: SunTrust Park! Cheer on the Braves in their first season at the new ballpark, across the street from our own Volunteer Service Center.
The first Scout Day with the Braves at SunTrust Park will be held on May 6, 2017. Scouts will gather before the game to parade around the field, participate in an opening flag ceremony and then cheer on the Braves as they take on the Saint Louis Cardinals.
Scouts will return to SunTrust Park for a second Scout Day on September 17, 2017 to cheer on the Braves against the New York Mets.
Our New Neighborhood
Directly adjacent to SunTrust Park is a new multi-million dollar mixed use development called The Battery Atlanta. We're excited to welcome our new residential and commercial neighbors to The Battery as they move in throughout 2017 and 2018. The area will feature premiere retail and entertainment destinations for the entire family including:
- Antico Pizza
- The Coca-Cola Roxy Theater
- The El Felix
- Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q
- Goldberg's Bagel Company & Deli
- Harley Davidson Motorcycle Company
- Holeman and Finch
- PBR Grill
We have been working with Cobb County and the Atlanta Braves throughout the development and construction process to ensure that The Battery district is a premiere destination in the Metro-Atlanta Region. Cobb County has developed a comprehensive Traffic Management Plan to address the increased interest in the area, and our team at the Atlanta Area Council are preparing the Volunteer Service Center for an exponential increase in visibility.
