Default Re: Minor League Baseball in Columbia

I heard that one proposal had money being put into a charter type school for the families that (they hope) will move into the area. Yeah...that will go over really well with the folks already in that area. Let's throw a bunch of money at a new school instead of trying to improve the failing schools in the area.
Yea that probably would piss them off.
I'd love for Columbia to have a minor league club.
Charleston and Greenville both have teams, so why not Columbia (again).
I remember going to Bomber games and having a good time. Imagine if Columbia gave them a facility like Greenville gave the drive. That team has done a good bit for its downtown explosion.

The RiverDogs are a little different (because it is tucked away between marsh land, an inlet, a neighborhood and the Citadel) , but their park is usually full Friday and Saturday nights.
