Amarillo mulls downtown ballpark

Amarillo Dilla Villa

Amarillo (Texas) is laying the groundwork for a new ballpark, as a downtown organization is working with the city on generating proposals for a private/public partnership on a new baseball facility; meanwhile, Potter County is still seeking a tenant for its ballpark.

The organization, Downtown Amarillo, recently presented the city with a game plan to bring baseball to downtown Amarillo, probably with the participation of a private investor and perhaps with Potter County. Nothing is set in stone, but things could start moving relatively quickly. A copy of the Powerpoint presentation in PDF format is attached: click here to read it.

What happens with Potter County Stadium — the former Amarillo Dilla Villa — remains to be seen. Potter County is still seeking a tenant for the ballpark after evicting the Amarillo Dillas (independent; United League Baseball): the RFP was published last Friday and responses are due October 25, 2010.
