Fayetteville Officially Back on Professional Baseball Map by Thad Mumau

Well, it’s official now … Fayetteville is back in the baseball business, back in the Carolina League and back in the victory column.

The latter taken care of with the 15-0 pounding our Woodpeckers administered on Potomac in Woodbridge, Virginia, in the season opener.  The BIG opener, of course, is the April 18 unveiling of Segra Stadium, with more than 5,000 folks on hand.

That will mark the return of professional baseball to Fayetteville after a 19-year absence triggered by the departure of the Cape Fear Crocs following the 2000 season.

As for the Carolina League, the last time a local team was part of that was in 1956 when the Highlanders finished fourth in the regular-season standings before knocking off High Point and Danville in the playoffs to win the league championship.
