Atlanta Braves begin new ballpark chapter at SunTrust Park

Atlanta( CNN) As Chipper Jones hung out in the Atlanta Braves dugout Friday afternoon, a few hours ahead of the Braves’ first regular-season home game at their new stadium, SunTrust Park, the future Hall of Famer fielded a question about what fans might be telling as they entered the ballpark for the first time.

“I would venture a guess the word mumbled the most — maybe not even mumbled — would be ‘Wow, ‘” the Braves’ icon said.

“I mean, look at that video board. Look at the LED illuminations, the unbelievable green grass, this incredibly orange clay. They watch how balls fly out of here and they find the skyline and everything, and they say, ‘Wow.’ I said it. Everybody else is going to say it . … This is very impressive.”
