The Gwinnett Stripers, formerly known as the Gwinnett Braves, are a professional Minor league baseball team based in unincorporated Gwinnett County, Georgia, within the Atlanta metropolitan area. The team plays in the South Division of the International League, and they are the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. They are located 35 miles (56 km) northeast of their parent club's stadium, Truist Park in unincorporated Cobb County—the second-shortest distance between a Triple-A team and its major league parent (behind only the Pacific Coast League's Tacoma Rainiers, based 26 miles (42 km) south of the Seattle Mariners). The 2019 season was the 55th season of the affiliation between Richmond/Gwinnett and the major league Braves, the longest-running affiliation in Triple-A.

History

After 43 seasons in Richmond, Virginia, the Richmond Braves relocated to Gwinnett County in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, in 2009.[2] The move marked a return home of sorts, as the team's roots can be traced to the Atlanta Crackers. Founded in 1901, the Crackers became the top affiliate of the then-Milwaukee Braves in 1965. When the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966, they moved the Crackers to Richmond, where the minor league franchise took the name of their parent club.

The Gwinnett Braves, as the club was known from 2009 to 2017, continued as the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves in the International League. The team rebranded as the Gwinnett Stripers prior to the 2018 season.

Ballpark

The Gwinnett Stripers' home stadium, Coolray Field, has a total seating capacity of 10,427.[3] Coolray Field opened on April 17, 2009.

Logos and uniforms

From 2009 to 2017, the official colors of the Gwinnett Braves were navy blue and scarlet, the same as their Atlanta parent. The primary logo resembled the Atlanta Braves primary, but with silver outline and with the word "Gwinnett" centered above.

The home jersey had the classic Braves' wordmark centered on the front, with the "Gwinnett" underscore underlining it. However, unlike Atlanta's jersey with navy blue and scarlet piping, the Gwinnett team's jersey featured scarlet sleeves with blue stripes.[4]

The Gwinnett Braves announced a plan to rebrand for the 2018 season by adopting a name that had a significance to the area and its population. A name-the-team contest was launched to determine candidates for the new moniker.[5] The six finalists announced were "Buttons," "Big Mouths," "Gobblers," "Hush Puppies," "Lamb Chops," and "Sweet Teas."[6] On December 8, 2017, the club announced its new name as the "Stripers", in reference to striped bass found in nearby Lake Lanier.[7]
