Re: Bakersfield "very unlikely" to get a new stadium
As mentioned, Kinston has probably seen their last minor league team. To my knowledge there is no pursuit whatsoever of a team for the town. The owner of the last franchise there was probably elated to find a taker for the team when he did. I called The Kinston Free Press (local rag) about a year ago and inquired to the sports department about any effort on the part of anybody to bring minor league baseball back to Kinston. One word, Nothing. The sad part is that the last year Kinston was in the Carolina League they had what was considered the best playing field in the league. The park experienced some really nice refurbishments in the past 10 -15 years. It is true though that the park is located in a bad part of town. Real sad story all things considered.
