A Charlottesville investor said Friday that he is considering plans to build a $20-million, 4,000 seat stadium in Waynesboro for a minor or independent league baseball team.
Jim Morris said he floated the idea Thursday in a meeting with local business leaders and city councilmen Frank Lucente and Tim Williams. Morris said he wants to gauge city support before moving forward.
â€œI have, in fact, talked to a couple of other people in the baseball world, and both … thought Waynesboro would be a candidate for some type of minor league baseball,â€ Morris said.
The ballpark would be built along the South River near Constitution Park.
