Fredericksburg city manager will ask council for $50K to evaluate baseball proposal
Fredericksburg City Manager Bev Cameron will ask City Council on Tuesday to appropriate $50,000 for evaluating a proposal for minor league baseball in the city.
The City is considering a plan to establish a minor league baseball team in Fredericksburg. The Free Lance-Star is reporting today that the Hagerstown Suns have indicated they are interested in relocating here if a deal can be worked out for a multi-purpose stadium.
City staff has advised that additional funding is needed to properly evaluate the proposal by “engaging bond counsel, financial advisors, and other outside consultants with subject matter expertise,” according to council documents.
