VIRGINIA GROUP NAMES POSSIBLE STADIUM SITES
Fairfax County, VA, officials revealed 12 possible sites for
a stadium they hope to build for a baseball expansion team for
Northern VA. The sites are spread throughout the county, with
officials saying an ideal site would be "more than 100 acres,
close to a major highway and an existing or planned rail system."
A 33-member committee will narrow the list down to "two or three"
preferred sites within a month. Loudoun County has also
identified two sites for a potential stadium. Outgoing Fairfax
