The Atlanta Braves have officially dedicated part of their new stadium in remembrance of a major figure in the team's history.

In a ceremony Thursday, Braves leadership and alumni honored Bill Lucas by naming their baseball operations conference room and a road in the new SunTrust Park, as well as a new apprenticeship, after him. Lucas worked for the team for more than 20 years, on the field as a minor league player and in the front office in various roles.
