Hank Aaron Helps Break Ground on Braves New Park

A new era begins.

The Atlanta Braves officially broke ground on their future home, and there to lead the way with a shovel was the legend himself, Hank Aaron. The SunTrust Park groundbreaking ceremony was caught on camera, and it's pretty special.

The Braves also unveiled a preview of SunTrust Park, which will debut on Opening Day 2017.

Aaron's clearly been enjoying this baseball season, as he also spent time with the Brewers' ballpark pup.
