Danville Baseball LLC Stadium Lease
Business Meeting: 05/04/2021
The City of Danville has entered into an MOU with Danville Baseball LLC for the operation of the American Legion Stadium and General Management of the Appalachian League team that will be housed here. The newly restructured Appalachian League is made up of College Freshman and Sophomores, and this league is supported by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball.
Danville Baseball will also be scheduling other baseball and non baseball events in the stadium. The City of Danville will maintain the playing surface and the overall facility. For this arrangement to move forward, a lease needs to be approved by City Council and signed by the City Manager.
As a result of the restructuring of the Appalachian League, the Atlanta Braves minor league team, the Danville Braves, who have been in Danville for 20 years, were no longer a part of this league. The City of Danville put out a request for proposal for an operator, and received two proposals. After evaluation, Danville Baseball LLC was selected to be the operator of the American Legion Stadium and General manager of the Danville Appalachian league team.
Staff recommends City Council approve the lease between the City of Danville and Danville Baseball LLC.
