Group set to bring minor league baseball to Bellmead

A large group of people showed up at the Waco Chamber of Commerce building Tuesday to hear about the new baseball team and baseball stadium that will call Bellmead home starting in 2018.
The team will be one of 6 in the new Southwest Baseball League, all 6 teams will be in Texas as the league begins play. They plan to expand the two following years and possibly to states other than Texas.
Fans will play a role in naming the team, they can do that at starting now.
The team will begin play in April of 2018 at a new ballpark to be built in the Bellmead area. The facility will be a multi-purpose stadium that will hold 4000 baseball fans for games and could hold many more for concerts or other events.
