Braves planning new Hank Aaron statue in SunTrust Park

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves say they are planning a new Hank Aaron statue at SunTrust Park, which will open in 2017.

The Braves said in a statement released Friday they no longer will contest the fate of the Aaron statue which now sits at the main entrance to Turner Field.

The team had said Wednesday Aaron should decide the fate of his current statue. The Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority says it owns rights to the statue. The Braves on Friday said the debate over the statue was "divisive."
