Charlotte can't support Major League Baseball. No Major League team is going to relocate to this city in this economy or in a thriving economy. We'd fill the stadium up weekends because the bleachers would be full of fans from the Greenvilles and Greensboro. But on Tuesday night?
So let's build a minor league ballpark downtown. The Charlotte Knights have always been willing to pay more than their share. Charge minor league prices and create an after work option for thousands.
Kudos to the Mecklenburg Country Commissions for seeing the possiblities.
If it weren't for the frivolous lawsuits that delayed construction, lawsuits filed by a real estate attorney who claims he knows a big league team that wants to move to Charlotte, the Knights already would be playing downtown. He won't name the team.
I think it's the Hogwarts.
