Anti-Baseball

Not everyone is excited about the possibility of a baseball team coming to Wilmington.

Over a dozen members of a local group with American's for Prosperity picketed outside of City Hall Tuesday to protest the City's decision to move forward with plans to build a stadium. They say it is unfair that people who have no interest in baseball would have to foot the bill for a tax payer funded stadium.

"If the Atlanta Braves, or whoever gets this deal, it is one heck of a deal," said Dallas Woodhouse with Americans for Prosperity. "They get all the revenue and the taxpayers get all the pain. I believe the city gets nothing out of it, not a dime in parking, concessions, no property tax. Lord have mercy who wouldn't want that deal?"
