Sunday letters: How is stadium ‘key’ to Bull Street development?

August 25, 2013 



— Whether or not minor league baseball returns to Columbia in a new stadium at the redeveloped 181-acre State Hospital campus, what does it mean for developer Bob Hughes to state that a stadium is “a key to the development’s success” (“Benjamin is boosting city’s hopes on baseball,” Aug. 12)?

Does that mean that without a baseball stadium, the development will not be successful?

I also wonder how feasible it is to hold events at the stadium 300 days a year, as Columbia City Council member Cameron Runyon has stated is “needed.” Do other minor league stadiums hold events six days each week?
