NEW OPTION FOR NORTHERN VIRGINIA STADIUM SITE
Published February 16, 1996
Stafford County, VA, a rural community 40 miles south of Washington, DC and 55 miles north of Richmond, has entered the hunt to become the site of a Northern VA MLB franchise. The Virginia Baseball Stadium Authority confirmed that Stafford economic officials will "pitch a 250-acre site adjacent to I-95" to telecom mogul William Collins, the leader of the group thought most likely to bring a team to the area. According to Authority member Michael Frey, the land could be donated by the county. Stafford joins Fairfax, Loudon and Arlington Counties as possible sites (WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL, 2/16 issue).
