Professional venue does not equal NEW venue.
Thee guys are NOT paid well:
“Minor League Baseball player contracts are handled by the Major League Baseball office. Here are the salary ranges:
First contract season: $850/month maximum. After that, open to negotiation
Alien Salary Rates: Different for aliens on visas--mandated by INS (Immigration).
Class AAA--First year: $2,150/month, after first year no less than $2,150/month
Class AA-First year: $1,500/month, after first year no less than $1,500/month
Class A (full season)--First year: $1,050/month, after first year no less than $1,050/month
Class A (short-season)--First year: $850/month, after first year no less than $850/month
Dominican & Venezuelan Summer Leagues--no lower than $300/month
Meal Money: $20 per day at all levels, while on the road.”

Now THERE's some economic impact for you eh?
These guys won't be eating anywhere downtown on $20/day
Single A ball belongs at Brooks field, although Kinston has a stadium available right now.
Let them prove they're worth a new stadium the way the WinstonSalem Dash did and the Charleston Riverdogs did. Both of them played at college fields - no beer sales and hard to find. Both teams grew, and both got new stadiums.
Here we are trying to put the cart before the horse
