    Braves' new stadium has a name SunTrust Park

    The Atlanta Braves new suburban stadium already has a name - SunTrust Park.
    The Braves are still more than two years away from moving into their new suburban ballpark.

VALLEJO, CA (RNN) - San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has a reputation as a fierce competitor. It looks like he's taking on all comers, regardless of species.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom posted a video to YouTube on Sunday of the former NFL quarterback doing pushups while at the park. Directly across from him was Siku, a 1,750-pound Pacific walrus who dropped and gave him a few of her own - much to the delight of staffers on hand.

Siku showed her skills as Harbaugh coached her "up" and "down."

ABC News reported the coach, visiting with his family, also got to bottle-feed a tiger, meet an elephant and ride some roller coasters while he was there. Six Flags communication manager Nancy Chan told ABC Harbaugh even got a kiss from his new friend.

No word on if Siku will be playing any left tackle for the Niners next season.
