Madison baseball stadium deal finalized; 2020 open date

MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

The city of Madison has finalized a deal for a new minor league baseball stadium.

The negotiations have been ongoing between the Madison city council, mayor and BallCorps LLC.

The lease and license agreement will bring the new stadium to the Town Madison development. Madison Mayor Paul Finley said they will have baseball in the stadium in 2020.

"After a detailed feasibility study, we are assured that this venture will support not only economic development in the City of Madison, but also create revenue for our school system and infrastructure needs as well," said Finley.

BallCorps LLC purchased the Mobile BayBears club in 2017 and has announced its intent to move the team.
