SOUTHERN PLAYALISTIC: In Atlanta, Douglas Sams reported the region's "largest contractors will soon make their pitch" to build the Braves' proposed $672M ballpark in Cobb County. The team "is expected to issue" RFPs by the end of April. No contractors currently "appear further along than American Builders," a group led by Kennesaw-based Brasfield & Gorrie LLC. The team also includes contractors Mortenson Construction, Barton Malow and New South Construction, which "is the current contractor for renovations at Turner Field." Other contractors also "are gearing up to make a run at the project," including Skanska USA, Turner Construction Co. and Holder Construction (BIZJOURNALS.com, 2/28).
