Phase II news.

The Park Circle demolition made way for a 4-6 story, 205 unit residential building. Samet Corp is asking the city to rezone the site @ Park and 1st St for high density residential. The building will have structured parking underneath and take up the 75% of the block. Lets hope Samet's designs this building to blend with the stadium. Renderings and news coverage should be coming soon. The request will go before the city council in March.

City Council approves new financing deal for the Dash Stadium, that paves the way for the Chicago White Sox organization to buy into the Dash, ensuring Winston-Salem will be a part of the White Sox organization for the next 25 years. That repayment structure would cover all of the debt costs for the city and could potentially net the city an additional $4 million over the 25-year life of the loan, with no new taxpayer funds needed. It's not a change of ownership for the team, but rather the addition of new owners, with current investors keeping their money in the team and the new investment being used to pay down the ballpark debt. It also solidifies that the Dash continues to be the player development team for the White Sox.

The ballpark has attracted 1.2 million fans since it opened in 2009.

BB&T Ballpark, the home of the Winston-Salem Dash, has been named the “Best of the Ballparks” at the Class A-Advanced level through a fan vote on Ballpark Digest. BB&T Ballpark bested LewisGale Field (Salem Red Sox) in the final round by snagging 61.8% of the fan vote.
In honor of this accomplishment, the Dash will provide fans with a special on-field photo opportunity at BB&T Ballpark after Tuesday’s All-You-Can-Eat for Free Night. In addition to free hot dogs and burgers, fans can take a photo on the field at the best ballpark in High-A baseball.  Since opening in 2010, BB&T Ballpark has hosted almost two million fans. The downtown facility reached the one-millionth-fan plateau quicker than any other in High-A baseball history. It earned the honor of “Ballpark of the Year” from BaseballParks.com in 2010 and has won several local awards over its first seven seasons.

In addition to the Dash’s 70 scheduled home games each season, BB&T Ballpark has hosted more than 200 other events over the last 12 months, including weddings, proms, movie nights, concerts and much more.

Starting the competition as a five-seed in a 29-team race, Dash fans helped BB&T Ballpark advance through four previous rounds in the second-annual “Best of the Ballparks” poll:

  • Semifinals: 59-41 percent over Charlotte Sports Park (Charlotte Stone Crabs).
  • Quarterfinals: 62-38 percent win over McKechnie Field (Bradenton Marauders)
  • Second Round: 55-45 percent The Hangar (Lancaster JetHawks)
  • First Round: 74-26 percent over Pfitzner Stadium (Potomac Nationals)
