Baseball out, concerts in as city plans revamp of stadium

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) A Connecticut city plans to convert a stadium currently housing its minor league baseball team into an outdoor venue for concerts.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim says the city-owned stadium will be redeveloped into an amphitheater with a $15 million investment through a public-private partnership.

Frank Boulton, owner of the Bridgeport Bluefish, a member of the independent Atlantic League, says the team is proud of its 20-year run. The city declined to renew a contract with the team after it expired last season.

Developer Howard Saffan says the amphitheater will open in 2019 and will host 29 concerts annually.
