    This is great news for the Ohio Valley League. They now have two top notch stadiums in the league, with League Stadium in Huntingburg, IN being the other one. I hope the new ownership group can do a good job filling the stands and not just focus on putting a competitive team on the field.

    Summer collegiate ball IMO is really hurting the growth of Indy ball n I wonder if the park standards aren’t the difference along of course the budget

    As far as Paducah not getting a team in a (legit) indy league, it probably had as much, if not more, to do with the area’s size than the ballpark itself…the county’s population is only 65,000.

    That’s good to see. I remember coming across that ballpark recently while perusing the Ballpark Reviews site. Seemed like a really nice ballpark but with no way to get a pro team – a park that was not really quite big or developed enough for the current indy leagues and too far out to be considered for the Appy League. Nice that they are getting a summer team there..
