Coolray Field is a 10,427-seat minor league baseball park in Lawrenceville, Georgia. It is the home field of the Gwinnett Braves, the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.HistoryCoolray Field hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 17, 2009, a 7–4 loss to the Norfolk Tides. The stadium site is located approximately two miles (3 km) east of the Mall of Georgia along Georgia 20, between Interstate 85 and Georgia 316.The 44acre site was previously farmland and forest. An additional 73acre of mostly forest around it became a mixed-use project, after a February 2009 rezoning by the Gwinnett County Commission. Naming rights are held by Coolray, an air conditioning and plumbing company based in nearby Marietta.The stadium construction and maintenance is being paid by the taxpayer-funded Gwinnett County government, but the Braves will keep most of the revenue from ticket and concession stand sales. The municipal bonds used to pay for the stadium run for 30 years (until 2038), but the Braves have an option to back out of the contract after only half of that time (in 2023), if the county does not maintain the facility at an acceptable level. This would leave county taxpayers responsible for the remainder. Although this relationship between the Braves and Gwinnett County appears unbalanced, the sales tax revenue that the county will bring in from the sales at the stadium will allegedly benefit the county more than the cost of the stadium.

  • My best friend took me, my grandson, and my grandson's friend to the ball game tonight. Home run club no less. An absolutely beautiful night(rained bottom of 5 tied), full of fun and friendship. Another great night at Cool Ray Field.
  • A wonderful stadium to watch a baseball game. The fans, the staff, and the players are very nice. It's a shame that the attendance isn't too high.
  • Very fun. Feels more like the JV Braves than a real minor league team. Stadium is beautiful and has good views for fans.
  • Beautiful ball park. Adult and kid friendly
  • Super employees from the parking lot guy's to the janitor to the vendors!! Hooah the best thug the Braves have for the fans..
