Potomac Nationals Owner Wants Stadium Vote Delay


Prince William County supervisors are currently set for a public hearing and vote on a deal that would bring a new Potomac Nationals stadium to Woodbridge, but there’s one big problem with that plan — the team doesn’t want to see it happen.

P-Nats owner Art Silber declared in June that the minor league baseball team needed a signed contract with the county on a plan to replace the aging Pfitzner Stadium before the end of July, or else he’d be forced to sell the ball club to an out-of-state buyer. The board voted downa chance to send the $35 million stadium to a November ballot referendum largely because of that deadline, and supervisors planned to finalize an agreement on the deal at their July 18 meeting.

But now Silber’s changed his tune, urging supervisors to delay a vote on the deal for a couple weeks to let negotiations continue.
