In June of 2018, the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) received and approved a request from the Mayor of the City of Hagerstown for the MSA to manage a study related to a proposed new Minor League Baseball (MLB) ballpark in Hagerstown.

The study includes a preliminary due diligence, market analysis, facility programing, and site analysis. The City of Hagerstown, Visit Hagerstown and the local industrial foundation known as CHIEF partnered to fund the $36,000 total cost of the effort.

MSA’s role in managing studies is to provide unbiased and objective analysis which provides information to local officials to assist in the decision-making process about investment and benefits for their communities and constituents.

In May 2019, the Hagerstown MiLB Ballpark – Market and Site Assessment study was completed and presented to the City of Hagerstown.

The ‘Maryland Stadium Authority’ further stated that the MSA is committed to enhancing the Maryland experience for those who live, work and visit Maryland. In addition, MSA currently oversees projects such as 21st Century School Buildings Program and Project C.O.R.E. which orchestrates the demolition of blighted structures throughout Baltimore City. The Sports Commission for the State of Maryland, known as Maryland Sports, is a division of MSA and has been since it came into existence in 2008.

For 35 years, MSA has completed projects in partnership with local Governments, universities and the private sector throughout Maryland. These include convention centers, museums, theaters, parks, and campus centers in addition to sports arenas. They have been completed on time, on budget. The Maryland Stadium Authority is committed to enhancing the lives of all those who visit its 85 acre Camden Yards Sports Complex – whether for work or for play and for those who utilize the projects it has developed throughout the State.
