Wilmington Petition Opposes Taxpayers Paying For Baseball Stadium

As the city of Kinston is still without a minor league baseball team since the Indians moved to Wake County, some people in a southeastern North Carolina city have started a petition opposing tax payer money going towards the construction of a new baseball stadium.

Over the weekend, the group in Wilmington gathered to collect signatures for a petition. They say they're not against baseball, just tax payer money going towards building the stadium.If they get signatures from 25 percent of the total number of people who voted in the last municipal election- the public would have to vote on the plan to build a stadium. The city recently reached an agreement with the Atlanta Braves to move the Lynchburg Hillcats there in 2014.
