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.
