Bombers moving upstate


fiasco!

Recommended Posts

this is particularly exciting news for me, since the G-Braves left town after last season.

the best part is that there will be a new stadium in a redeveloping area of town. they will be the bombers for at least one more year, then undergo a name change (most likely something to do with being a red sox affiliate, hopefully not)

great news for baseball fans in greenville.

Meanwhile, it now appears that the Hagerstown Suns could be moving to Columbia, SC.

If Mandalay Baseball Properties' bid to fill the G-Braves' vacated territory been approved, they planned on paying for construction of a new stadium in Powdersville themselves. Mayor Coble in Columbia has said that if a new minor-league baseball owner is willing to foot the bill for stadium construction, the city would help out with land acquisition. Theoretically, if Mandalay was willing to pay to build a stadium in Powdersville, they'd be willing to do so in Columbia.

As for the West Tennesse Diamond Jaxx, rumor has it that they're either going to be bought by the city of Jackson, Tennesse and remain right where they are, or possibly sold to Nolan and Reid Ryan's ownership group and moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

the powdersville plan will not happen....that was one of three propositions for minor league baseball in the greenville area. the other was in mauldin.

minor league baseball picked the greenville (west end) location of the three proposals.

edit: it appears that i completely misread Brian's post....nevermind.

Here's hoping that USC's new AD will be less hostile towards other sports entities in town.
