On Tuedsay, there was a closed meeting between the Universtiy, the Emeralds, the city and the Eugene School District. The purpose? To discuss some of the questions surrounding the baseball team, such as where they'll open play in 2009 and if they will share a stadium with the Emeralds. In today's Register-Guard, there's a report on the meeting. There's been talk of adding Civic Stadium to the National Register of Historic Places, which could complicate matters, particularly potential upgrades the Ducks might like to make. Despite wanting to have a location selected by the end of the year, it doesn't sound like a whole lot was accomplished -- though it was the first time that all the groups were together to discuss the stadium issue.
Also, something I had not seen before -- the Ducks will open league play against the Beavers on March 27, 2009 at a yet-to-be-determined Eugene site.
