Macon-Bibb officials to hear pitch on possibility of funding baseball study | Local & State | Macon.com

When Macon Mayor Robert Reichert met with his Rome counterpart last year, he noted that Evie McNiece always answers his question of how the Rome Braves are doing with a smile.

“It drives me crazy,” Reichert said.

Macon has been without an affiliated minor league team since the Macon Braves finished the 2002 season and departed for Rome after that city built a $14 million stadium to lure them away.

Reichert and officials from the Macon-Bibb County Urban Development Authority will hear an informal presentation Wednesday night to gauge the authority’s interest in funding a feasibility study to explore what it would take to bring minor league baseball back to Macon.
