Team History[edit]

The Gwinnett Stripers succeeded the Gwinnett Braves as the International League affiliate of the Atlanta Braves starting in 2018. The team decided to find an original name after finding it very hard to create a buzz and develop a team identity around the team with the major league Braves playing just a few miles away.

The name is inspired by the striped bass, a prize catch of local anglers.
