Baseball is back…. at least at the Diamond. That’s right, the one place no one is talking about playing baseball will host a team next year. It appears the deal will be inked by the end of the week to bring the Connecticut Defenders to the River City. The Defenders are a Double A team for the San Fransisco Giants. The deal is worth $260-thousand dollars over two years. (that’s just to use the Diamond.. that’s not how much the Richmond Baseball Club will pay for the team.) Now the RBC wants a stadium in Shockoe… Others want a new stadium on the Boulevard. Will this team ever see either? Or will they leave town before a decision is made. That’s the big question for city leaders this summer.
I have a great joke about Richmonders and change that I was told on my first day in the city.. if you see me out… ask me. 🙂
