Loudoun Week In Sports

Minor league baseball update, Washington Redskin appearance, cheerleading camp, flag football and a soccer team seeking players

<b>Minor League Baseball Update</b>

The Loudoun County Land Use and Transportation Committee recently voted in favor to permit the proposed minor league ballpark at Kincora. The recommendation will now go before the county’s Board of Supervisors for a vote on July 21.

The 424-acre Kincora Mixed-Use Development was rejected by the Board of Supervisors in 2007, but that proposal did not include a 5,500-seat baseball stadium, which would be home to a Loudoun-based minor league team in the independent Atlantic League.

Developers and government officials are encouraging residents to attend a July 20th public input session in front of the Board to voice their support or dissent for the project. The session begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Loudoun County Government Center (1 Harrison St., SE in Leesburg).

<b>Washington Redskin Appearance</b>

Washington Redskins’ defensive tackle, Lorenzo Alexander will make an appearance at DMB Sports Camp at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne, VA on July 21. This will be Alexander’s first appearance to DMB Sports Camp. He is also the second Redskin to visit the camp this summer. Alexander will talk to the campers about football and his experience with the Washington Redskins, and will also sign autographs for the campers.
