Media outlets report that the Town Council voted Tuesday night to authorize the sale of Calfee Park to Shelor Motor Mile. The town manager and attorney will negotiate a purchase agreement.

Calfee Park was built in 1935 under President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration.

Shelor Motor Mile plans to renovate the ballpark.

Shelor Motor Mile Co-owner David Hagan told the council that the Pulaski Mariners won’t return for another season. The Mariners are a Seattle Mariners Appalachian League affiliate.

Hagan says the dealership is in talks with several other minor league teams.
