Recently, the borough of West Chester turned down a stadium proposal to bring minor-league baseball to town.  Phoenixville is now lining up to see if baseball will work there.  Manny DeMutis, a developer, said he would love to see a new stadium built on a 10-acre section of the Phoenix Steel site in downtown Phoenixville.  DeMutis cited Lancaster and Allentown as examples of how a stadium can bring people and money into a town year round, not just during baseball season.

A committee of twenty Phoenixville and Chester County residents, community leaders and business owners has been assembled to decide if this project is economically feasible for the borough of Phoenixville.  If all the stars align, a new stadium could be completed as early as 2014.
