Augusta, GA---The feasibility study that would look at bringing the Greenjackets downtown has been signed. The cost---about 50 thousand dollars. All that money was raised through private donations. The study is set to begin the first week in January. We should have results by February. The city is looking to build the new ballpark next to Golf and Gardens along the Savannah River. The study will determine if that location will prove to be a homerun...for the team- and the city.

    So wrong, this is the exactly what they need to do downtown. What else is going to bring hundreds of thousands downtown each spring and summer. Lake Olmstead is outdated and lacking, that is why it draws what it does. It's time Augusta joined the 21st century like the rest of the new South.

    I feel this is a waste of someones money. Augusta has a perfectly good ballpark that is never more than half full. If built, what type event will be there when the ball season is over?? Only bring people downtown to see ballgame, not to shop, eat, etc. A total waste of taxpayer's money if approved.
