The TDC voted at its May meeting to explore a partnership with a private group that is working to recruit a team—likely a Class A affiliate.
A new sports complex is planned adjacent to Frank Brown Park and a potential minor league stadium would most likely go in the same area.
“It would be huge," said TDC Chairman Buddy Wilkes. "Number one--it could be a great asset for the community. It will be a nice amenity for local families,” he noted. Wilkes said tickets prices could cost as little as $3.00 each.
The stadium is expected to cost around $30-million.
