The RTD connects some dots between a Denver visit by a delegation of Richmond-area leaders and the conversation around a baseball stadium in Shockoe:
After a trip to Denver last week with Richmond-area leaders, the vice president and chief operating officer of the Richmond Flying Squirrels believes the visit could lead to progress in discussions about a new Richmond stadium.
Professional baseball in Richmond has been played on the Boulevard since 1954, and The Diamond has stood there since 1985. City officials continue to evaluate a Shockoe Bottom location for a ballpark.
The spring 2013 issue of the Virginia Defender (PDF) explains the opposition to a ballpark in Shockoe Bottom.
