The city that's enjoying the success of being an All-America City this year has another line for its resume: top Minor League Sports Market in the state.
Kinston earned the honor from Street and Smith's Sports Business Journal this week.
The city that's home to Grainger Stadium and the minor league baseball team, the Kinston Indians, ranks high on the national list, too, at number 13.
The Kinston Indians are celebrating their 60th year at Historic Grainger Stadium. The Kinston Indians are a minor-league affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
