First I want to say that I read your blog regularly and enjoy your work. It’s nice to see somebody who cares about the welfare of Newburgh, and take the time to inform people about new and upcoming businesses / housing opportunities in the area. I live about 10 miles from the city and regularly volunteer for habitat, and patronize Newburgh businesses, so any time investment in the city is a plus in my book!
The reason that I’m posting is to bring to your attention that Newburgh is supposed to be getting a professional baseball team for 2015, playing in Delano Hitch stadium. The team is called the Newburgh Newts (not sure who picked that… but there are worse names out there, I suppose 😉 ). Newburgh hasn’t had a prefessional team since the ’97 Nighthawks, so this seems like a pretty exciting development. Here are some links I found with more information:
Judging by the dates on some of these sources, this has been in the works for awhile, but I only heard about it a few days ago through an acquaintance. A little sad that it’s getting almost no press. It may be good material for a piece.
