A Cobb County leader says the Atlanta Braves would pay 55 percent of the cost for a new $672 million stadium under terms of a deal that would bring the team to the city's northwest suburbs.
When the Braves leave for the suburbs in 2017, the City of Atlanta will lose about $4 million in annual sales tax revenue. That figure comes from an economic impact study by Professor Bruce Seaman of Georgia State University.
