Star Staff Reports
Back in June the announcement was made that a group form Alabama is purchasing GameDay Baseball in Cordova and Millington’s historic USA Stadium.
Upper Deck Sports, LLC, a four-person group, will invest about $5 million into the two facilities. Upper Deck Sports is a private firm buying USA Stadium from the City of Millington. The longtime Flag City venue was once home of the U.S. Baseball Olympic team from 1986-96. It was the training site for the team before heading to Seoul, South Korea; Barcelona, Spain and Atlanta, Ga.
The other venue in Cordova is GameDay Baseball. Upper Deck Sports is purchasing GameDay from the nonprofit GameDay Healthy Kids Foundation.
Both facilities will have improvements done in phases giving USA Stadium Complex a dozen fields and improvements to the main stadium.
