The Gwinnett Stripers, of the International League and briefly in Triple-A East, have been owned by their parent club for more than five decades - although with operations now outsourced. The Atlanta Braves farmhands play their home games at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA.
The Stripers are among the teams Endeavor Group Holdings acquired in late 2021 and put under its newly created Diamond Baseball Holdings subsidiary. However, Endeavor's announcement differentiates that it will "operate" the four Braves' teams, suggesting something other than an outright sale. Endeavor also owns Ultimate Fighting Championship and Miss Universe.
Uniquely, the Braves have twice bumped their own top farm team: in 1953, when the Boston Braves bumped the Milwaukee Brewers to Toledo, OH; and in 1966, when the Atlanta Braves sent the Atlanta Crackers to Richmond, VA.
"Stripers" is for striped bass, spun off from the 2017 naming-contest submission Big Mouths for nearby Lake Lanier's largemouth bass. The team decided to find a local-interest name after finding it very hard to create a buzz and develop an identity around the team with the big-league Braves playing just a few miles away.
The Fish play Copa de la Diversión Hispanic engagement campaign games as Xolos de Gwinnett (Xolo is short for Xoloitzcuintli, the dog breed also known as a Mexican hairless).
