Hopes Dashed: No new Winston-Salem ballpark this season

I was doing some research reading, over at the Winston-Journal on-line this morning, and saw this story that caught my attention. To read the complete article go to W-S baseball stadium:

Winston-Salem’s downtown baseball stadium is not likely to be finished this season, sources close to the project say.

Construction on the stadium, which is being built at Peters Creek Parkway and First Street, is all but at a standstill — crews have not been there in weeks. Subcontractors have told the Winston-Salem Journal that they have had difficulties getting paid for their work.

Late last month, one subcontractor filed a lien against the stadium’s developers, Brookstown Development Partners and Sports Menagerie Corp., claiming that it was owed more than $84,000 for work it had finished at the stadium. The subcontractor, Right Touch Interiors, did work on floors at the ballpark. The owner, Tommy Adams, could not be reached yesterday.
