I remember seeing a thing on first and 10 a few years back about the MLB moving to Charlotte. I think it was the Marlins and some other team that wanted to move there.

they are moving into a new stadium next year so...

You are right.....first there was talk of the Montreal Expos coming here which are now the Washington Nationals then there was some talk of the Marlins coming here but I don't think it was ever serious. As much as I would like to see it, Charlotte can't support a pro MLB team right now.

Don't forget the Minnesota Twins' bid to come to Charlotte too, although I think that was just a bluff to get Minnesota to spend some money on a new stadium (which they finally got).

I've always liked about 3 or 4 teams .. Giants always being the fav due to barry bonds .. Though you can't go wrong with the Cardinals , Cubs , and Twins.

Lot of times if you don't live in a MLB city, it may depend on your age when you started watching.

I always loved playing baseball growing up. It was the thing to do. I remember watching the Series as far back as the 76 one. But not till 80 did I latch on to a team. The Cards.

I have been a loyal fan of them since 1980.

I would be in heaven if we got a baseball team, I would go all the time. Do you guys think there would ever be a chance? Put a 35,000 seat stadium in downtown of the QC and I think we could support them.

I heard high school baseball is very big back there so why don't you guys think you could support a pro team?

I think Charlotte could support a baseball team. Great weather for a team, too. You'd have a huge market for TV games, too.

What games are shown primarily in NC/SC? Braves?

I think we certainly could...remember when the Hornets first moved? Had the best fans in the NBA because it was something new, Panthers still have good fans and sell out every game on a yearly basis. An MLB team would be new and have great success, great weather as well. The Knights attendance sucks because that stadium is out in the middle of nowhere near the airport. Put that thing downtown and expect drastic improvement. Obviously, through 162 games you're not gonna be able to pack a stadium night in night out. But put a 35,000-42,000 seat stadium and as long as we could get around 25,000 in a night that wouldn't be too bad. Man, I want baseball so bad but I don't see anyone that's about to move except maybe Tampa Bay. The Marlins fans suck, idk why they're building a new stadium. Still no one is going to go and see them play. If a team does move or a new one gets created I think either us or Portland would get it, can't think of anywhere else.

Yeah mainly Braves but my family around the Raleigh area says they get the Nats so idk. I get the Braves though.
