Imagine the potential!!!
Imagine the potential!!!

This is a photo I snapped from my iPhone on Sunday afternoon. It is from Dozer Park in Peoria. A beautiful baseball facility that is the home of the Peoria Chiefs a Single A minor league baseball team that is an affiliate of the St Louis Cardinals. It was the affiliate of the Chicago Cubs until the team lost the Cubs who moved to Kane County in the Chicago Suburbs.

The reason I show this is because I really feel this is something Springfield needs to do. We need a ball park like this and we need to steal the Cardinals affiliation away from Peoria and put Springfield back in it’s rightful place as the Midwest league Cardinal Affiliate.

Imagine if in the outfield you could see the State Capitol building? Imagine the businesses that would spring up around it? Imagine the tourists who come to Springfield having a reason to spend the night? Imagine what a NEW ballpark would do to the city?
