Hardball Acquires Another Team

Savannah Sand Gnats sold to Hardball Capital
Link (Atlanta Business Chronicle)

" Atlanta-based Hardball Capital has added to its holdings of minor league baseball teams with the purchase of the Savannah Sand Gnats of the Class A South Atlantic League.

Hardball Capital, whose principals are Barry Real Estate Companies Inc. CEO Chris Schoen and former Bondurant, Mixson and Elmore LLP attorney Jason Freier, also owns the Fort Wayne Wizards of the Midwest League."


"The Sand Gnats play in Grayson Stadium, which was built in 1927 and is the oldest operating stadium in affiliated baseball in the country. Hardball is building a $125 million mixed-use stadium in Fort Wayne, but has no plans as of yet to do so in Savannah."

"Hardball is building a $125 million mixed-use stadium in Fort Wayne...."
I thought that the City of Fort Wayne was building the unnecessary new stadium?
And Hardball just was getting free rent of the place?
Have we been misled again?
