A huge steel beam is marking a major milestone for the Atlanta Braves and their future home in Cobb County.

It was an exciting day for the Braves as a special piece of steel brought the team closer to their new home at SunTrust Park in southeast Cobb County.

Everyone in attendance was eager to add their names to the last bit of the ballpark's frame including the club's vice chairman.

Topped with an American Flag and an ash tree, the 33-foot beam was hoisted to a section more than a 150 feet above what will be the playing field when the state of the art park opens next April.
