Most of the hard work is complete. “We are completely through with the major elements of the construction of the ballpark,” Braves president of business Derek Schiller said. That leaves about three weeks for finishing touches before the first official unveiling when the Braves play the New York Yankees in an exhibition on March 31. Only season-ticket holders are invited, and Schiller says a crowd of about 20,000 is expected. Schiller acknowledged the new park must be accompanied by improved play from the Braves. “We came out of two years in a row where we struggled as a team and conversely struggled at the gate,” he said. “It’s not lost on us we have to deliver two things at once. We have to make sure the baseball environment at this new ballpark has everything to offer, and I believe will satisfy even the most discerning baseball fans. Then we also have to deliver a very good baseball team.” There will be open ticket sales for a Georgia-Missouri college game on April 8. That will be the final public trial run before Atlanta’s home opener on April 14. The biggest attraction for the Braves’ new home may be the mixed-use devel- opment being built around the park. A crane still hovers over a hotel directly behind the stadium. Schiller said some restaurants, bars and a concert venue around will be ready for the start of the season. He said more will open during the season. SunTrust Park, in the suburbs, about 15 miles north of the old Turner Field, has the feel of a traditional stadium, with green seats and some brick walls and a large canopy. It also has a modern feel with LED lights and “internet capabilities unlike any other sports venue in the country,” Schiller said. “It should be the fastest Wi-Fi and in- ternet speeds of any ballpark as well as any mixed-use development in the country, if not the world,” he said. The new park has an interactive area for kids, including a zip line and a climbing tower. The Chophouse, a restaurant and bar in right field, features outdoor seats with cooling cup holders. The bottom floor, on field level, allows fans to look through a chain-link fence only a few feet from the right fielder.

With about three weeks until the Braves play the Yankees in an exhibition game, finishing touches are being placed on the team's new suburban SunTrust Park.

MESA, Ariz. - Oakland Athletics ace Sonny Gray will begin the season on the disabled list with a lat strain and has been shut down from throwing for the next three weeks. The team made the announcement Thursday, and general manager David Forst said there’s no timetable for the right-hander beyond the preliminary stretch. This is a big blow to the A’s and Gray, who was eager to start fresh following a forgettable 2016. He was scratched from his scheduled outing opening day last year because of food poisoning and never had the kind of season he envisioned as the leader of the rotation. He spent two stints on the DL and went 5-11 with a 5.69 ERA on the heels of back-to-back 14-win campaigns. Gray, who received a $3,575,000, one- year contract to avoid arbitration, initially had plans to pitch for the U.S. in the World Baseball Classic. A’s Gray has lat strain, will begin season on DL ASSOCIATED PRESS TIM HEITMAN / USA TODAY SPORTS Oakland starting pitcher Sonny Gray, who is hoping to bounce back from a rough 2016 season, will begin this season on the disabled list with a lat strain. The former Smyrna High School and Vanderbilt star has the potential to be the team’s ace.
