Savannah baseball team owner pitches new stadium

Dec. 9, 2013 SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- The owner of Savannah's minor league baseball team is seeking support from the city for a new multi-use stadium.

The Savannah Morning News reports ( that the Savannah Sand Gnats' owner is pitching the idea of a new stadium along the Savannah River to host baseball games, concerts and other events.

Hardball Capital CEO Jason Freier says Grayson Stadium is no longer a suitable home for the company's baseball team due to the aging ballpark's deteriorating condition and location outside of downtown.

Freier said he is seeking a partnership similar to one that Hardball Capital formed with Fort Wayne, Ind. Fort Wayne's Parkview Field was built using a combination of public and private funding.
