Georgia State University will build baseball stadium in downtown Atlanta

July 3, 2024
The 1,000-seat facility will be constructed on a parking lot site that includes the footprint of the former Atlanta Braves stadium.

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia has approved the construction of a new stadium for the Georgia State University baseball program on the Downtown Atlanta campus.
 
The university says the 1,000-seat stadium will be built on the site of Georgia State's Green Lot, which includes the footprint of the former Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, where the Atlanta Braves played until 1996.

The new facility will enable the university to move the baseball program on campus from its existing facility 12 miles away in Panthersville.
 
The project, with a budget of $15.85 million, will be funded by GSU Athletic Association gifts and reserves and foundation funds and gifts.

The stadium is expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2026 season in February 2026.
 
The statue of home run king Hank Aaron that now sits in the entry plaza at Center Parc Credit Union Stadium will be moved to the new baseball site in honor of Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run, which he hit at Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium in 1974.

The baseball stadium will be situated just north of Center Parc Credit Union Stadium, the home of Georgia State football and the headquarters for the athletic program, and just south of the new GSU Convocation Center, the homecourt for the Georgia State basketball teams.
