Astros to Play Ball in Fayetteville

by Michael Polzella

The Houston Astros and the city of Fayetteville signed a 30-year agreement that will bring minor league baseball to downtown Fayetteville. As part of a downtown revitalization plan, a new stadium is planned, slated to open in 2019.

The new stadium, located off of Hay Street, is expected to cost $33 million and will be a venue for concerts and other events when there are no baseball games. The stadium is expected to attract approximately 250,000 people annually to the city.

For the next two years, the Astros will play in Buies Creek, awaiting the Fayetteville stadium completion.
