There is an interesting history of sorts to the pending Hagerstown move. The move will be to Fredericksburg, Virginia. The intent is for the low A team of the Washington Nationals to be in Fredericksburg beginning with the 2015 season. Recent events suggests this move is as close to certain as possible. A nice chunk of private money is on the table to get the team...seriously. Private investment moves these kinds of initiatives along. The Hagerstown park has been an undesirable park for years now and this move isn't overly surprising. As far as a Carolina League team moving into Hagerstown is concerned, it will most definitely entail the need for a new ballpark. Geographically, Hagerstown would work in the Carolina League nicely but it may not be financially feasible.
