COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) — Construction on Synovus Park – formerly known as Golden Park – is shifting into high gear.

The baseball stadium and field have to be game ready for the Double-A Atlanta Braves farm club in 10 months.

But something interesting has happened as they stripped the old park down to its bare bones in preparation for the $50 million construction project.

Retired pastor Rudy Allen spent his youth at Golden Park.

And he says what has been revealed in the early part of the construction is the old 1951 park.
