Washington Nationals Single-A Affiliate Considering Possible Relocation

The Nationals Single-A affiliate Hagerstown Suns might be on the move due to some compliance standards they would be forced to meet at Municipal Stadium.

The Hagerstown Suns are the Washington Nationals Single-A affiliate, but according to some new reports, they might be considering relocating. According to Bob Parasiliti of the Herald-Mail the Suns recently received a letter from the Nationals and Major League Baseball stipulating some changes that that must be made to Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown.

"We were told that a ‘compliant stadium is absolutely necessary,’" (Majority owner Bruce) Quinn said. "We were forced to search for a home." Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said Tuesday that he has heard talk of the letter, but has not seen it. Before that, Suns officials had been asking for improvements and added amenities to 80-year-old Municipal Stadium, Quinn said.

The Suns' Stadium in Hagerstown is a relic, and while it has a lot of history, it is not the easiest place to get to or watch a baseball game. One of the options for relocation is Winchester, VA, which is just down route 81 from Hagerstown. Quinn says that Winchester is the only place that has offered a stadium in writing.
