A new ballpark for the Loudoun Hounds (independent; Atlantic League) is on hold while issues related to access are being resolved, with 2014 now eyed as an opening date.
Here’s the statement from the Hounds’ Bob Farren via the team’s Website:
With the fact that construction of the road system cannot begin for several more months, it is becoming more and more clear that 2013 is slipping away for the Hounds and until there is more certainty, we are taking down the countdown that is on our website until such time we can demonstrably indicate a real timeline. We are disappointed to be doing this, but we remain no less committed to working with the developer to getting the Ballpark done. We are working on modifications to all of our planning to get baseball into Loudoun County ASAP.
