If the Oakland Athletics of the MLB can't get a new stadium they will move in 2024.

One possible location mentioned is Charlotte.

It would be awesome to have a MLB team in NC. I hate everything goes to Charlotte though, mainly because I'm 3 hours away.

The Mn Twins were mentioned about a possible move to Raleigh several years ago.

Is there a ballpark in NC that seats +- 25k fans? 🤷‍♂️

I love baseball, but I don't love owners that hold taxpayers hostage over a new stadium every time it suits them.....George Shinn???


that was my thought also,,, not sure I want tax money (if it's using state money) used for a dang ball team BS,,,,,

but that's my ornery self,,,,

if it's all local money (city taxes) then up to those yahoos,,, I mean locals,,,,

Charlotte just built a stadium for the knights several years back, and right now they are busy working on the soccer franchise. I doubt they are in the position to start up a MLB team in the next few years.

I thought Vegas was getting the most attention for A’s relocation. Wouldn’t it require some league realignment if A’s relocated to the east.
