Clearing for minor league ball field?

One of the first things I noticed when I pulled into Cape at the first of the month was all of the land being cleared north of Fort D.


Rumor has it that it's for a minor league ball field. Any truth to those rumors?

I spoke with Earl Norman recently about the work he was doing to clear this property.

While Norman does have dreams of seeing the area used as a sports complex someday, the clearing work going on there doesn't mean these plans are moving forward.

Norman said he was getting rid of some eyesores at the site to make the property more attractive to a potential buyer.

For now, we'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for this site.

Thanks, MelissaMiller, for the update.

You made the call to Earl Norman that I didn't. That's why you're a reporter and I'm retired.
