Hamilton Joes want to build ballpark downtown

Team plays in Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League

HAMILTON — Hamilton's successful collegiate summer baseball team is talking about building a top-rate, minor league-sized ballpark downtown.

The Hamilton Joes – named after former Reds pitcher and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall -  are looking at the former SMART Paper site along North B Street on the west side of the Great Miami River.

“We’ve been looking to build a stadium downtown to revitalize the area,” said Darrel Grissom, club president and general manager.

Grissom's idea for a new ballpark would have 2,500 to 3,000 seats. It would cost between $7.5 million and $10 million, according to Hamilton architect Mike Dingeldein.

Dingeldein said his firm has created a concept design for a stadium.
