Pulaski to sell ballpark to Shelor Motor Mile

Posted: Updated:

PULASKI, Va. (AP) - Pulaski plans to sell its historic baseball park to a Christiansburg-based car dealership.

Media outlets report that the Town Council voted Tuesday night to authorize the sale of Calfee Park to Shelor Motor Mile. The town manager and attorney will negotiate a purchase agreement.

Calfee Park was built in 1935 under President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration.

Shelor Motor Mile plans to renovate the ballpark.

Shelor Motor Mile Co-owner David Hagan told the council that the Pulaski Mariners won't return for another season. The Mariners are a Seattle Mariners Appalachian League affiliate.

Hagan says the dealership is in talks with several other minor league teams.
