    I agree. But I don't know if they'll attract much until they build something new.

    Who plays at that ballpark on the freeway in Chattanooga? Looks so close a few cars could get hit with a baseball.

    Well, they really screwed the pooch
    IT appears as of now , the ballpark will not be @ 1st and Gateway

    if they want a new park, it looks like it will have to be in Franklin
    because Metro voted 38-0 against extending


    and the developer probably couldn't be happier. They are still trying to move ahead with their condo/hotles on the site

    other options now include a new Amphitheater to replace Starwood (which would be bad for bus at the Arena just blocks away)

    The Sounds just ain't ever got it right have they ?

    The move gives the Sounds and Struever only until April 15 to find a way to solve their differences. At that time, the agreement between the Sounds, Struever and the city lapses. And no stadium will be built, at least in the near term.

    Sad, that stadium being built was about the only hope of me ever really wanting to go to sounds games regularly. I hope they find something exciting to do with the land, it's a big spot.

    Why were they spending so much on a freaking minor team's baseball park? Let them use some local highschool's or something.
