Biloxi has a new minor league baseball team and a baseball stadium needed to be built. Plans were drawn and bids were let. The city said they could BARELY afford the "have to have" stadium.
The team owners and league said if the stadium could not be completed by the "home opener", the city would be fined $10,000 per home game.
First problem, after starting the stadium it is learned that it does not have enough seats to meet the standard for new league rules. Cha-ching, $1,000,000+
Second problem, someone forgot to include a scoreboard. Cha-ching, $1,000,000.
Third problem, they fire the general contractor and try to be letting bids to all the sub-contractors. Cha-ching.
Now the stadium will not be completed on time and best case it will cost the city $250,000 for missing 25 home games.
Makes one wonder how many more city and county leaders will be charged with kick-backs.
