Braves' Cox, Schuerholz join ballpark panel discussion


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Atlanta Braves are bringing in a couple of big bats for a panel discussion about Wilmington's plans for a ballpark.

Braves President John Schuerholz and former manager Bobby Cox will join the Greater Wilmington Business Journal's Power Breakfast panel Tuesday morning at the Hilton Riverside. Cox also spoke before Wilmington City Council at a meeting earlier this year to announce the Braves' interest in the ballpark plan.

The discussion will center around how minor league teams are connected to communities and potential economic impact.

Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo and Rich Neumann, the president of Mandalay Baseball, which wants to run the team here, will also take part, along with Braves Senior VP and CFO Chip Moore.
