Wilmington Ballpark Coalition
A new poll says a majority of Wilmington voters do not see a ballpark as a priority for the Port City, and an even larger majority say they're against spending tax money on the plan. Meanwhile supporters of the ballpark say it's a good investment for Wilmington. Francis De Luca, head of the Civitas Institute, which commissioned the poll, and Jim Hundley, chair of the Wilmington Ballpark Coalition, joined us in studio to debate the issues involved.
