As the delegation heard from the Maryland Stadium Authority, stadium projects in other parts of Maryland usually have a three-way funding split — one-third city, one-third county and one-third state.

The Hagerstown stadium project apparently hasn’t reached that stage.

“There’s a lot of details that are fuzzy,” Serafini said.

Hagertown City Councilman Lewis C. Metzner said the community and local elected officials have to make their feelings known sooner than later if baseball is going to stay in the Hub City.

“I think we are truly in danger of losing this ball club if, in fact, we continue down the road we’ve been on,” Metzner said.

He said that he would be “very disappointed if we don’t have 100 percent of the state delegation there” on April 17.


“As long as we have people straddling the fences with both ears on the ground, this project will never get off first base,” he said.
