Council approves youth baseball complex

At last Thursday's council meeting, the Plaquemines Parish Council voted 8-0, with Councilman Percy V. Griffin absent, to approve a resolution supporting a planned youth baseball complex that supporters say could generate up to $50 million in tax revenue over 10 years. The complex, tentatively called Champions Park, could be a potential “baseball mecca of Louisiana,” said Wally Pontiff of Champions Park, LLC.
