Expansion Prairie Dogs Already Talking New Ballpark

    Dear Abilene,

    RUN! Run as fast as you can!

    If you need some background on Byron Pierce and John Bryant please see https://ballparkbiz.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/neuces-county-sues-coastal-bend-thunder/ OR https://ballparkbiz.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/nals-bryant-targeting-brownsville-tx/ – these are just a few.

    In closing, RUN!

    Can you really build a ballpark for 3 to 4 million dollars? Or a better question is a ballpark with a few thousand fixed seats? Seems to make it this cheap, you would have to have the land donated, the have lots of bleacher seats, and more covered stands and no fixed buildings. Maybe a few business trailers on site, and a low end score board. Maybe I am totally wrong on this cost assessment, as Abilene will be a nice location for a team.
