The problem isn't that the people don't want a stadium. I think if you ask everyone, most people would say that they would welcome more baseball to the area. The problem is that the City of Wilmington cannot afford to fund it and a majority of the taxpayers don't want the higher taxes required to fund the stadium. If this was such a good economic boost and just a great investment, then why aren't private parties stepping up to the plate to fully fund this stadium? If the council goes ahead with this the only people who benefit are those who build the stadium.
