NEW OPTION FOR NORTHERN VIRGINIA STADIUM SITE
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).
