HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The city of Biloxi and contractors bidding on a new baseball stadium appear to have come to a new agreement.

The bids from contractors were much higher than the city anticipated, and the new ball park in Biloxi was thrown into jeopardy.

The Huntsville Stars are supposed to move to the city next spring.

But now, it looks like the bids have been adjusted and the deal will move forward for just over $29 million.

However, the stadium will likely not be finished until about 12 months from now - more than halfway through the 2015 baseball season.
