This Wyndham deal in NLR looks exciting


The news that Frank Fletcher would be finally building his "tower" at his Wyndham Hotel in North Little Rock hit the front page of the D-G (good story, David Smith), and the tie-in with the new Travelers stadium, Dickey-Stephens Park, with the tower looking over the left field fence, is an exciting announcement. Travelerocity, the blog that covers the Travs and minor-league baseball, takes a look at the Wyndham expansion plans.

Also, a recent item on Travelerocity notes that Dickey-Stephens will be among the smallest parks in seating in the Texas League. When the Little Rock-North Little Rock area starts turning out for the Travs like fans show up for Frisco and Springdale Springfield, we'll start worrying that the seating might not be enough. I think it's reasonable to predict that Springdale will draw better than the Travs when the Wranglers move there next year. I hope Travs fans prove me wrong; actually, Travs fans support the team, there are just not enough of them. The Travs new NEW regular fans. I think they're trying, and have at Ray Winder. Maybe the new stadium is what's needed to add 2,000 or so regular fans a night on average. At least 2,000. If Springfield can draw 6,000 a night, certainly LR-NLR can.
