The city leaders of Wilmington need to ask seriously how Winston Salem got in the ball park business. The coliseum has been around for many years as has the old Bowman Gray Stadium. BUT, the "new" baseball park is only a few years old. Started with private money and possibly some city money, it became apparent early into the process it would end up all city money when Mr. Billy Prim's business issues came to light. Bad business dealings on his part led to the city taking over, much less at his begging!
Wilmington is a great city and does not need any more financial issues to pull it down. Winston Salem seems to be putting money down a dry hole. Sure, people have come out, but this year's economy may shut that down.
