A New Ballpark for Owensboro?

There has been talk of building a new minor league ballpark in Owensboro, Kentucky for several years now. For three seasons, the city has been home to the Owensboro Oilers, a summer collegiate team in the KIT League that took the old nickname of the popular Kitty League team that played there from 1936 to 1942 and 1946 to 1955. But it's no secret that residents would prefer a professional team, either independent or affiliated with a major league club.

Renewed development in the downtown area has revived talk of a new ballpark. (There's a video segment to watch as well).
