Fresh off the loss of the Florence RedWolves (summer collegiate; Coastal Plain League) to Francis Marion University’s Sparrow Stadium, Florence officials are considering a new downtown ballpark.
There’s plenty wrong with American Legion Field when it comes to game-day operations: there’s not much space and there are no basic amenities like clubhouses or workout facilities, so it’s no surprise the RedWolves bailed. And other athletic facilities, such as the high-school football field, are sorely lacking.
