Northwest Arkansas Naturals shut out the Arkansas Travelers to move into a tie with the Travelers for second place in North Division of the Texas League. 5,232 fans enjoyed the game in the brand new Naturals stadium.
Six weeks prior to when Pensacola voters approved the Community Maritime Park, Springdale, Ark. approved a sales tax to pay for its ballpark – even they didn’t have a team at the time. Today they have a ballpark and a team.
Pensacola instead paid $12.8 million for its employees pensions and retirement plans last year and has no funds to cut the grass on the park property.
