Fullers Park renovated, field renamed for Braves player

Fullers Park


The Atlanta Braves, Cobb County officials and baseball fans young and old recently celebrated renovations to Fullers Park with a special ceremony renaming the field in honor of Braves Hall of Famer Chipper Jones. The park's baseball field was revitalized through the generosity of the Atlanta Braves Foundation and the rehabilitation will benefit Eastside Baseball League, which had 159 baseball teams and 1,746 participants in 2014.

Field improvements include a re-graded infield, an added infield mix, laser grading for proper drainage and rebuilt pitching mounds. On-deck circles and new netting at the backstop were also purchased and installed. The property for Fullers Park was purchased in April 1967 and development of the more than 50-acre park was completed in June 1974.
