The team was previously known as the Richmond Braves for 43 seasons. On January 14, 2008, it was announced that the Richmond Braves would move from Richmond, Virginia to suburban Atlanta in 2009. The announcement was made after the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners unanimous vote.
The move to Gwinnett County marked a return home of sorts for the Braves, as the team began life as the Atlanta Crackers in 1901. By 1965, the Crackers were the then-Milwaukee Braves' top farm club. When the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966, they moved the Crackers to Richmond, where the minor-league franchise took the name of the parent club.
