The City of Springfield became the new owner of Hammons Field, the home of the Springfield Cardinals, in March.
“We have the Double-A franchise of the most popular Major League team in the Midwest,” McClure said at the time. “They add a vibrancy, excitement and level of entertainment as well as foster a great degree of community pride. We plan to be the home to the Springfield Cardinals for generations to come.”
