A Port Huron, Mich. council member is pushing a 4,500-capacity ballpark for an independent Frontier League team, but right now there’s no funding plan on the table.
Jim Fisher says a new ballpark on the shores of the St. Clair River would add to the quality of life in the lakeshore city. Minor-league sports have had a spotty record in the city — indoor football failed, which minor-league hockey had its ups and downs — and Fisher envisions a basic ballpark (seating 2,5000, with room for 2,000 more on a berm and party areas) that could cost $8 million or so. That’s the sort of ballpark where Frontier League teams thrive. In terms of location, the market fits solidly in the Frontier League footprint.
