Minor League Baseball in Columbia
I think there may have been a thread on this a while back so sorry for starting a new one. I just wanted to see what you guys thought about this. Things seem to be moving forward..
yesevamoore: City staff might have some baseball stadium docs ready for a Council vote at March 4 meeting.
I like the idea of getting another MiLB team here. Besides baseball, the whole Bull st project brings new restaurants and bars, new housing, and jobs to the area. There is no baseball played in Columbia after the middle of June so I don't think getting people to games would be a problem. MiLB is about entertainment and kids love it. I didn't know this and I'm sure you guys didn't either, but Columbia is the second largest market in the country, behind Tucson, AZ, that doesn't have a professional sports team.
