Sugar Land, Meet Your New Baseball Stadium

Hey, Sugar Land, want to see what your new stadium looks like?

Planners have yet to map out an exact location for the facility among three possible sites, but are leaning toward a tract leased from the University of Houston System at U.S. 59 and University Boulevard.

Brooks Robinson, a partner in the operating Opening Day Partners, said this about the impact on the Astros:
“We’re talking about a 7,000-seat stadium here. As far as having an impact on the Houston Astros, I don’t think it’s going to make a difference."

So what should the team be called? I vote for the "Sugar Land Killer Bees."

Let's get some chatter about the name, vote on it, and submit it as a proposal, all of us together.
