Baseball group won't send new Ray Winder proposal
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A group hoping to use Ray Winder Field for high school, college and American Legion baseball will not submit a new proposal to the city before Monday's deadline.
Rex Nelson of the Ray Winder Field Foundation said yesterday that his group wasn't planning to try again after a committee reviewing the field's future sided in January with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in its attempt to acquire the land. The Little Rock Zoo also wanted the land for expansion.
The city later had to toss out the three proposals and start the process over again.
