Did you know Charlotte's had a baseball team since 1901? And back then they were called...wait for it...the Charlotte Hornets?
The "Hornets" played in Dilworth until the mid 1980s when their field was destroyed by fire, then moving to Fort Mill and renaming themselves the "Knights." The Knights have just turned another big corner in their history, moving into a brand new $54,000,000 stadium smack in the heart of Uptown Charlotte. Welcome home, Knights.
So, was the money spent by the city, taxpayers, and private donors worth it? The new BB&T Ballpark has been open for less than a month but so far, all signs point to yes.photo: Gaston Gazette
Huge Attendance Numbers
So far the team's averaged a little less than 10,000 spectators a game…
