Springfield developer John Q. Hammons has announced plans to build a 10,000 seat ball park to attract a AA minor league baseball team to the city. Hammons told an audience at the Springfield Chamber of Commerce that he is in negotiations with the AA club, but he says he’s not at liberty to disclose what team. Construction could begin next year if all the required permits are obtained. The stadium will also be home to the Southwest Missouri State University Bears baseball team.
