Braves moving Class AAA team to Atlanta suburbs

The Atlanta Braves are scheduled to announce today that they're moving their Class AAA Richmond franchise to Gwinnett County, Ga.

The Braves, who own their higher-level affiliates, have an out clause in their contract in Richmond after the 2008 season.

Such a move would give Biscuits fans a short drive for a few Durham Bulls games per year, but it could mean a longer haul for the Biscuits. Ballparkwatch.com lists West Tenn and Huntsville as potential candidates to move to Richmond.
