For you to claim to be an educator in higher education and a former collegiate women's basketball coach, your statement puzzles me. You do realize it is not the Atlanta Braves that they are proposing to bring to Wilmington, it is the Lynchburg Hillcats. It is not major league baseball, it is minor league A baseball. With your higher education would you please explain how spending 58 million dollars in tax payer money is a "Value" for the tax payers spending it? During this whole process, the people for this project just issue blanket statements without any verifiable proof to back them up. Would you care to be different and offer verifiable economic proof to back up your statement? Your statement sounds like many others put out by Mr. Spencer and Mr. Kuebler in the past, especially with the "Go Braves" added to the end of the statement.
The fact that there is another option out there that gives this area a stadium without tax payer funding should end the discussion for the current deal. Any economic benefit the area receives from a stadium happens immediately if there is not millions of dollars in loans/debt that have to be paid off before realizing the benefits. Wouldn't this be a much greater option/value for our area?
