DC Baseball PAC Thanks the council & Mayor williams

This has been an overwhelmingly successful week for the DC Baseball PAC. The week was kicked off with a rally at Buffalo Billiards in Dupont Circle, with over 100 people supporting the Council’s efforts to bring baseball back to DC. Then yesterday’s Council vote affirmed the PAC’s efforts. According to Neil Alpert, the President of the DC Baseball PAC, “Everywhere we went throughout the city, people told us that while they had some reservations regarding public financing, they wanted baseball back in the district, and offered to help us in anyway they possibly could.”

While yesterday’s vote was a great success, the DC Baseball PAC will work the next two weeks to ensure that the citizenry of Washington, DC is made aware of all of the benefits that will derive from the return of Major League Baseball to Washington, DC. “It’s only right that our nation’s pastime return to our nation’s capital,” said Neil Alpert.

Contrary to what the anti-baseball coalition would like the citizenry of Washington, DC to believe, the Nationals will mean billions of dollars in new development in Southeast Washington, an area that desperately needs it. 

The funding for the stadium will also not be coming from the General Fund. The lease payments will be paid by the team owners, a special ballpark fee will be levied to only those biggest businesses in Washington, DC, and taxes will be placed on such items as tickets, concessions, merchandise and parking.

The DC Baseball PAC will work to ensure the success of baseball in Washington, DC by promoting awareness and giving a voice to those who really care about baseball but have neither the vehicle nor time to say so.
