Default Re: MLB to Columbia if Bull St. is bought?

Not a fan of a minor league team in Columbia. Fan interest would likely only be in the months of June and July. April May and August, folks would have other priorities.

This Bull Street development is doomed to fail in my opinion. The goal is to attract decently well-off families to move into the neighborhood, spend their money there, and elevate the area. Problem: the area is zoned for C.A. Johnson. Few well-to-do families or considerate parents would consider relocating to send their kids off to C.A. Johnson, a school with proficiency levels drastically below the already pathetic state and district averages.

True, and I can assure you it is easier to get to Columbia from anywhere in SC than it is to get to OKC from anywhere in OK.

I dislike the Panthers and hate the Braves.

I also do not care about another minor league team, we already have one, with an extremely bad A** stadium... Go Cocks!

Worth noting there are a fair amount of old-time Dodgers fans in the upstate due to Tommy Lasorda's connections to Joanna and Greenville.

I understand now, originally when the news came up on the screen the reporter said MLB.

It is amazing how quickly the city is trying to move on bringing a minor league team (MiLB) to Columbia.

They say that can have a stadium built and a team playing by the 2015 season? WOW.

My question is...what city will be losing a team? I can't see them starting an entirely new franchise from the ground up. Certainly part of the plan is moving an established team here.

According to TheState, it seems to be the Class A Savannah Sand Gnats, a New York Mets affiliate.

It seems like they're having issues getting a new stadium in Savannah.

Lol yeah I thought the same thing. I mean really. An MLB team in a city with 131k people in the city limits and 784k people in the metro area? The SMALLEST metro area with an MLB team is St. Petersburg, Fl, home of the Tampa Bay Rays which has 244k in the city limits and Tampa Bay with 347k next door. The entire county in which Tampa is present has 1.2 million people living there.

Point being, Columbia SC is at least half as large as the current smallest metro area with a MLB team. It'd be like Montgomery Alabama suddenly saying it wanted an MLB team. Ludicrous.

Did the Augusta Green Jackets settle their stadium issue? I've heard talk of them and the Savannah Sand Gnats being teams possibly looking to move.

The Lynchburg Hillcats were looking to move to Wilmington a couple of years ago, but Wilmington didn't approve a plan to build a new ballpark. So, they could potentially be an option too.

Well, Columbia is in talks with Hardball Capital right now. This firm owns a team in Ft. Wayne, In and the team in Savannah. So, I guess the Savannah team is the only real option.

There is a lot of blowback right now about taxpayer funding of the stadium. I tend to agree given the current state of Columbia's water infrastructure, current funding should probably concentrate on that. Plus, the location on the Bull Street property isn't the nicest part of town. So you have to wonder how many people will show up there for night games.

The mayor has been dying to get MiLB back in Columbia, so he is really trying hard on this.

Ok, for the 3rd time. When the news reporter first came on TV he had a gaffe and stated MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL team. Jokes wearing out, we all know it's a minor league team.
