if it's anything like the deal they tried to get with PWC, Fredricksburg tax payers are going to be paying for this one for a long time to come.
It’s $1 million per year but I forget how long.

I guess that leaves Mel Brooks and Dick Van Dyke.

He would have made like $400k for this season. Thats not gonna move the needle for a guy like him when he could risk getting sick and taking it home with him.

Side note - I met  him once in Norfolk. He was playing corn hole with David Wright. We were all in this VIP area at this wine fest down there. I went right up to him and asked for a pic. I couldn't help myself and didn't realize until later what a dick move that is. He was totally cool. David Wight took the pic and I said I didn't need one of him and they both laughed. He could have told me to F off and I would have deserved it....Its kind of hard to not think there is some kind of connection with these guys with as much support as we give them as we follow the team. The players don't know us from anyone.

Wonder if they can get a deferral on the first $1 million payment due to the pandemic. I’m sure the Lerners will be willing to help the city out under the circumstances.  :hysterical:

it will hold about 6k or so for events, so I'm sure they will have plenty of potential acts.  Think Wolftrap.

Desmond posted a long explanation on his instagram account (i_dez20).  He said he's taking the season off because he has a pregnant wife and four young children, and he wants to rebuild the Sarasota Baseball Academy that he went through as a child, and that is now in disarray.

His post covers his upbringing in a broken family, experiences with racism (he's mixed-race), inequality, and his views on current events.  He talks about working with a child at the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy who was shot to death at age 18. It is heartbreaking.  He also talks about the culture of the game and how players have to be reserved and can't express themselves.  He praises Davey Johnson for telling him to be himself.
Sounds like he will be productive with his time.

I’m sure the size of the acts that Fredericksburg can attract will totally justify the stadium price tag
