New Baseball Stadium Coming to Town

By Steve Lieberman, The Journal News

RAMAPO — Minor league baseball is coming to Rockland County.

Opening day is scheduled for June 1, 2011. A singer already has been chosen to sing "The Star Spangled Banner." Ticket prices have been set.

Right now, the site is 65 acres of woodlands, with renderings displaying a 3,500-seat stadium off Firemen's Memorial Drive, near Route 45 in Ramapo.

"What we will have is a family-oriented experience with the American pastime of baseball," Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence said during a preview of the stadium with the designers on Thursday.

Aside from 50 professional baseball games from June to Labor Day , officials said, the stadium can provide an economic boost to the county and create more than 100 construction jobs through union labor, about 25 full-time jobs and up to 75 part-time jobs.

"Minor league baseball will make Rockland a destination point," St. Lawrence said.
Known as "Project Grand Slam ," the stadium will cost an estimated $25.5 million — $17.5 million for the stadium and the $8 million cost for last year's purchase of 67 acres. The stadium and parking will sit on 25 acres.

There will be a $1.295 million fee to become an expansion team in 2011 with the Canadian American Association Professional Baseball league, known as CanAm.
Tickets are projected at $12 for the field seats and $7 for the second tier, officials said.

Ramapo will bond the cost of the stadium, which would be located off Palisades Interstate Parkway Exit 12, over 30 years.
