The Washington County Agricultural Education Center is poised to get a 2,000-seat section of bleachers from Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.
Two county agricultural groups have pledged $38,500 to buy the bleachers, said former state Del. Peter G. Callas, who negotiated the deal.
Volunteers will go to Baltimore this weekend to explore how to dismantle them and bring them back to the ag center near Sharpsburg.
"This will be nice for Hagerstown to have a piece of Memorial Stadium," Callas said.
The Washington County Ag Expo board of directors and the Washington County Tractor Pull Association will have seven years to pay for the aluminum and steel bleachers, which are barely a year old, Callas said.
