MLB Expressed Concerns About Md. Minor League Park

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The majority owner of the Hagerstown Suns says Major League Baseball and the Washington Nationals have requested improvements to the 80-year-old stadium that the minor league team calls home.

Bruce Quinn told The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown Tuesday that major-league officials sent him a letter in October seeking upgrades to city-owned Municipal Stadium.

Quinn says the letter prompted the team’s owners to consider moving the club elsewhere.

He says a substandard playing surface and antiquated clubhouse facilities are major problems at Municipal Stadium.

The Suns are considering moving to Winchester, Va., if officials there can guarantee funding for a new stadium.

Meanwhile, Hagerstown officials say they’re considering sites for possible construction of a new stadium in Hagerstown.

The team is an affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
