Mavs Stadium Appears To Be A Go

Notice a few quotes from Columbia's finest, Mayor Hindman

When told that a new home will have to be found for the youth baseball and softball league that plays there:
“It never occurred to me that the American Legion field was being used seven days a week,”
--Who would have thought that kids like to play baseball and softball as much as possible in the summertime? Maybe Mr. Hindman should pay a little more attention to this town, he is like the mayor and all.

On the Mavericks attendance

“To be perfectly frank, my feeling has always been if they had a winning team, they would have great attendance,” Hindman said.
--Most families that attend the games go for the experience, they could care less about winning. The college kids that attended the games went to watch baseball and drink cheap beer. If you give the guys the opportunity to say how much better they are at baseball, that's a plus.
