NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) — The Atlanta Braves’ new spring training home in Florida will be known as CoolToday Park.
The team announced a 20-year naming rights deal with the home service company.
CoolToday Park will host Atlanta’s final spring game in 2019 and become the team’s full-time training home in 2020. It is set to replace the Walt Disney World complex near Orlando, which the Braves are leaving because of long travel times to other spring training sites in Florida.
The centerpiece of the new $125 million facility in Sarasota County is a 7,000-seat stadium with a total capacity of 8,500.
