City Council Pushes Controversial Downtown Site for Suns

After months of going back and forth, a majority of the Hagerstown City Council says they're now in favor of building a new multi-use stadium for the Suns at a controversial downtown site.
HAGERSTOWN, Md. - After months of going back and forth, a majority of the Hagerstown City Council says they're now in favor of building a new multi-use stadium for the Suns at a controversial downtown site. 

Councilman Donald Munson had previously rejected the idea of a new stadium in Hagerstown, but he is now the third council member to support plans for the new facility. Munson said in weighing what needed to be done for the future of the city, he decided it was necessary. 

Others have voiced a desire to build a less expensive facility at different sites, or even renovate the current 83-year-old ballpark. But Suns officials have said they would not continue playing at the current location. 

In Fredericksburg, the city council says they're confident they can strike up a deal with the Suns to bring them to Virginia. They could vote on the proposal with the team as early at August 27.
