RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Does Richmond need a new baseball stadium?
One city leader is encouraging regional cooperation to make it happen.
Councilman Charles Samuels says he's held a series of community meetings to get input from residents and business owners on what they want to see on the Boulevard.
He says overwhelmingly, he's hearing that a new diamond is needed and the current location on Boulevard is where it should go.
Samuels will hold a district meeting next month to discuss the issue and the results of his community talks.
That meeting is set for Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 5:30 at the Hermitage, which is at 16 Hundred Westwood Avenue.
