Re: “Does downtown Raleigh really need a new stadium?

I would like to see a baseball stadium built downtown ! The Atlantic League , a independent league not governed by the 30 mile rule wants to expand from 8 teams to 12 teams . Virginia Beach will be their 9th team in 2017 . The league started in 1998 & plays @ the AA level . In the last few months , pitchers & position players have signed contracts with MLB for contracts between 2 to 48 million dollars . The Atlantic League Home Page has this info. Their President Rick White had 15 yrs. of upper MLB management , the last 11 yrs. being President/CEO Of Major League Properties before coming to the league 2 yrs. ago . Major League stars Roger Clemens , Ricky Henderson , Scott Kazmir , Dontrelle Willis , Juan Gonzalez , John Rocker , Jose Canseco played in The Atlantic League . Gary Carter , Tommy John , Bud Harrelson , Sparky Lyle , coached in The Atlantic League . A Raleigh investor & former minor league pitcher for St. Paul , Minn. is currently working toward a Raleigh team .
