The discussion of the future of the low Single-A Hagerstown Suns and possible stadium deals in Virginia or Maryland steered toward Fredericksburg, Va., today.
According to a report by Zac Boyer in the Free-Lance Star, Suns ownership said if Fredericksburg can approve a new stadium deal, the Suns will move there and begin play in 2015.
It is no secret that Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown could use a face lift and the field has some quirky undulation in parts. But the critical decision of a new stadium in Hagerstown continued to lose momentum as new plans in that city were never finalized.
Fredericksburg became one of the frontrunners and this looks like the best opportunity for a Suns move south in the saga.
With Potomac building a new stadium on the I-95 corridor, the Nationals would have a pair of affiliates within 32 miles of each other. Nationals Park is also only 55 miles from Fredericksburg.
