Residents Weigh in On MPEV Bumper Sticker

The City of Amarillo has unveiled the new bumper sticker showcasing the projected start date for the new MPEV downtown. The sticker says "baseball begins Spring 2019. #ItsaHit."

Readers of the Amarillo Pioneer have weighed in on the sticker through our Facebook page this afternoon. Here is what they had to say:

"We Built It But They Didn't Come! Now we will raise your taxes...again!" - Nick H.

"Not quite sure how they determine when they will play when we don't have a contract, it's all hype at this point." - Boyd G.

"Hit is right, to our wallets." - Terry B.

"I personally can't wait for baseball to be back in town and on top of that AA baseball. A farm team for the majors. We will see future and sometimes current players come through here again. I support Amarillo and support this MPEV. We need it." - Darren L.

"I can't wait! I love baseball games!" - JoAnne S.

"Does not inspire excitement for me...even if I *liked* baseball." - Jerri G.
