Reds used to be in Winston-Salem, team is in a lot of flux.
The Winston-Salem park will be brand new. Construction on it is not even complete for the coming year but they're all over it to be ready. Currently the White Sox are there. The Reds have one more year under contract here in AA and I truly hope they stay beyond this.
Lynchburg is a good park for any organization. They won the Carolina League championship this year with the Pirates and the fans support their team there. I would not bemoan being in Lynchburg at all. The Pirates used to have the same situation here, Lynchburg and Zebulon for A and AA ball respectively.
