Baseball Update at 11 o'clock

I was just watching the local 11 o'clock news and it was reported that the Norwich, Connecticut City Council voted unanimously to allow the Defenders, out of their lease for Dodd Stadium.

I learned from The Norwich Bulletin that the team would move to Richmond in time for the 2010 season and would play its first two seasons at the Diamond. A new stadium, Shockoe Center, is proposed to be built in Shockoe Bottom for the 2012 season.

This news reminds me of my comments to Richmond City Council's Finance Committee during the Citizen Comment Period at its February 19, 2009 meeting.

And for good measure, we should also include Mrs. Ellen Robertson's response after all she is the Chair of the Finance Committee and Vice President of the Council.

You may be interested in a report of a presentation from the developers that appeared in Buttermilk & Molasses last month.

Or you can sign a petition to keep baseball on the Boulevard.
