Goodbye Richmond Braves

19 01 2008

This past week the Atlanta Braves announced that they are moving their AAA team, the Richmond Braves to Gwinnett County, Georgia.  Reasoning behind this is due to the inability of Richmond to build a new stadium for the team.  For 5+ years the area has been discussing building a new ballpark and nothing has come of it.  And now, the Braves are tired of waiting and are going somewhere where they’ll build a stadium for them.

This is another example of the inability of Richmond to realize its potential and actually do something.  The Richmond area is awesome at failing to live up to its potential and squandering opportunities. 

 Farewell Braves.
