Future of Knights Stadium to be studied

Knight Stadium

York County (S.C.) will spend the next year and a half discussing what will be come of Knights Stadium after the Charlotte Knights (Class AAA; International League) move to a new Uptown ballpark in 2014.

A six-person committee was charged with determining the fate of the 10,000-seat ballpark and the adjoining 33 acres. What was a middling ballpark site now has the potential to be much more: 33 acres just across the state line from downtown Charlotte is certainly an attractive proposition for many developers, and York County has a blank slate in what could be a very lucrative proposition, whether it be a new equestrian center, a mixed-used development or something different.
