If the WI legislature fails to approve a plan for a new stadium for the Brewers, the team will leave town, possibly to DC or Charlotte, according to the the AP's Dan Hanley. Without approval of the stadium, the Brewers could be playing next season at RFK Stadium or Charlotte's Knight's Castle (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 9/26). Mike Scanlon, Exec VP of Virginia Baseball, said the group led by William Collins has had talks with the Brewers ownership (WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/26). Meanwhile, WI State Assembly Speaker David Prosser has yet to line up the 50 votes necessary for a financing plan to build a new $250M ballpark for the team. Prosser said he would not bring the issue to the floor until he had support, but he insisted the vote will take place tomorrow. Prosser said he gained support yesterday by expanding the taxing districts responsible for funding the stadium to include Racine County, just south of Milwaukee (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 9/26).
