Developers flee, rather than stand for questions

The show that's been traveling around town selling the building of a baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom made a stop at Hill Middle School last week. The meeting was ended in a way that was less than satisfying to some who had bothered to attend, hoping to have their questions answered.

Richmond.com has a piece up that I wrote about the event.

A man brought up Bostic’s history with Richmond Baseball Initiative, the group that effectively put the kibosh on the plan to renovate The Diamond, with its push for a baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom five years ago. Bostic bristled. He labeled the question, “unfair!” Then he blustered about The Diamond’s $18.5 million renovation plan. He cracked that the figure would have turned out to be “$30 million.”
