State Mutual Stadium has been the home of the Rome Braves of the South Atlantic League since its completion in April 2003. The facility seats 5,105 people.

Naming Rights[edit]

The naming rights were sold to Rome-based State Mutual Insurance Company on February 28, 2003.[7] The terms of the agreement were $250,000 for 18 years.[8]

Features[edit]

The stadium contains 14 luxury suites, a full-service restaurant, and a group pavilion. The playing field dimensions are a mirror of the parent club's Turner Field, which is a mere 70 miles (110 km) away.
