Baseball supporters are speaking out at Fredericksburg council meeting

Six of the first 10 speakers at tonight’s Fredericksburg City Council meeting spoke about the possibility of a minor league baseball team coming to the city.

Five of the six supported it, suggesting it would provide a good evening activity and one that is family friendly.

The one woman who opposed the project urged council to focus on its comprehensive plan and said that the proposal “seems like it’s promising something for nothing” and that it came “out of nowhere.”
