I remember the days of watching the Raleigh Capitals play at Devereux Meadow in the late 1950s when I was 11 years old. I loved it! I also love downtown Raleigh, with all the new projects and new high-rise towers now being built. I would love to see baseball come back to our downtown.
I am aware of the 30-mile baseball rule between two teams. I have also written Jim Goodman to ask him to support Raleigh downtown baseball. I do realize that it would take a miracle for this to happen.
All of our large cities in North Carolina have a downtown professional baseball team, including Asheville, Durham, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and smaller Hickory.
Raleigh is a booming city, and baseball would add many positive factors for our city.
Never miss a local story.
