A developer has donated 10 acres for a proposed minor league baseball stadium in Parkersburg.

Pat Minnite announced his donation on Tuesday. He says the next step is to determine how to fund the project and who will be involved.

Minnite invited leaders of the effort to build the stadium to meet and discuss how to move the project forward.

He said he envisions the project as a sports and entertainment venue that would offer music, family events, restaurants, hotels and other amenities.

Stu Williams, owner of the Frontier League's Washington Wild Things, has agreed to commit staff and resources to the process. In exchange, Williams would have exclusive rights to bring a team to Parkersburg.
