Proposal to Demolish Greer Stadium Comes Into Focus

After much controversy, the decision of what to do with Greer Stadium is coming into focus. Last week, Nashville Mayor David Briley proposed to demolish the former home of the Nashville Sounds and to reincorporate the former field into Fort Negley Park. The plan, which still needs the approval of the city council, would bookmark $1 million to tear down and clear out the old ballpark to begin the process of restoring the land. Mayor Briley told The Tennessean, “This is a moment where community participation, where voices being here led us to the right result.”

The Knapp Center sits on the grounds of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The arena opened on December 1, 1992 at a cost of $12.5 million and was named after William Knapp, a member of the Drake Board of Trustees, who played an integral part in getting financing for the arena.

The tour took 90 minutes and the time flew by. Walking around the old ballpark was an enjoyable experience. Cubs fan or not, Wrigley Field veteran or not, a tour of Wrigley Field should be on any sports fan’s schedule next time they visit Chicago.
