SMYRNA, Ga -- While SunTrust Park got overall good reviews on its first night of regular-season baseball – not to mention a Braves win to make it all the sweeter – that glow quickly faded after the game, with hundreds of fans in the Braves Uber line stranded for hours.
Social media blew up after the game, with hundreds of fans complaining of long delays and unresponsiveness:
@Uber your drivers all suck, sincerely every Braves fan trying to leave the game tonight— Jaceb Harris (@SodaPop2494) April 15, 2017
@Braves Beautiful ballpark, but what a terrible experience. Uber pickup totally unorganized, fights starting. Embarrassing.— Donald Andrew House (@AndyH33) April 15, 2017
A total of 41,149 fans packed into the Atlanta Braves new stadium in Cobb County on Friday night, for the first game of a seven-game homestand at SunTrust Park.
