Hardball Capitol article from the Savannah Morning News

Contrasting the Georgia stadium (old) with the Ft. Wayne version (new):
Sand Gnats: In with the old, and the new | "Jason Freier took out his iPhone and displayed photographs of his baseball team's sparkling new ballpark in Fort Wayne, Ind.... A few minutes earlier, Freier, as chief executive officer, had announced that Hardball Capital's other minor-league team, the Savannah Sand Gnats, had extended its lease at Grayson for another two years.... The contrast couldn't be much greater between a showplace, Parkview Field, and venerable Grayson Stadium, originally built in 1926 and reconstructed in 1941. Though the winds of time have swept through the place, and there are a few noticeable updates like the video scoreboard to complement the hand-operated one, it's pretty much the same facility where legends (i.e. Hank Aaron) and All-Stars (i.e. Hank Blalock) played before they were famous."

Kiss that baby goodbye, folks.
