The Atlanta Braves open their new ballpark, SunTrust Park, tonight, rekindling an age-old debate: How much should ballpark factors weigh in our pitching matchup decisions?
As Chipper Jones hung out in the Atlanta Braves dugout Friday afternoon, a few hours ahead of the Braves' first regular-season home game at their new stadium, SunTrust Park, the future Hall of Famer fielded a question about what fans might be saying as they entered the ballpark for the first time. Then again, he said he had a good feeling heading into the game. The fans are going to get excited and so are the players. "Everybody was pumped in the dugout and you could feel the excitement of the crowd".

Fans have already started showing up at the stadium, well before the scheduled 7:35 start time. "But I battled the whole game". Ender Inciarte had a huge night knocking to pitches out of the park and seemed to break out of the funk he had been for the first few games of the season. "I think everything kind of came together the way they like". Any reviews of the new park wouldn't be complete without mentioning The Battery, a mixed-used development that combines a yet-to-open hotel that looms over center field, bars, restaurants, office buildings and apartments, of which some are still vacant. "Seeing SunTrust behind the batter on every pitch, seeing people across the country respond to that, seeing clients respond ..."
