Lost in all of this is the fact that the Atlanta Braves are not coming here to play. Its the Lynchburg Hillcats. I started going through the box scores for attendance figures and lets just say hey weren't too great. Calvin Falwell field has a capacity of 4,000. There were some good attendance numbers on SOME weekend games but during the week? Those numbers were pathetic. In some cases there were under 1000 people attending the games. The 2012 average for Lynchburg is 2343 per game in a 4000 seat stadium.
And we're gonna build THEM a 6400 seat stadium? And expect 5000 people per game according to Terry Spence?
The "Waves" are rolling in again and the Port City Roosters are "crowing".
We must be out of our collective minds
All I can say is, if they build this thing we better hold them to a 30 year lease
