The Mets get a new single A team

Marty Noble at writes about the Mets and the Savannah Sand Gnats reaching a deal for the new single A team:

The Mets have reached a two-year player development contract with the Class A Savannah (Ga.) Sand Gnats of the South Atlantic League. The Sand Gnats, most recently an affiliate of the Washington Nationals, will continue to play their games at historic William L. Grayson Stadium, which will undergo a $5 million renovation beginning soon.

The renovation, scheduled to be completed for Opening Day 2008, calls for a new playing field, renovated dugouts and clubhouses, the addition of suites, additional concessions, a grass berm in left field, improved party decks, and an upgraded scoreboard. The ballpark opened in 1926 as Municipal Stadium and was rebuilt and renamed in 1941.
