The Eugene Emeralds currently play at PK Park in Eugene, home of University of Oregon Baseball. But due to new standards in Minor League Baseball stadiums, and the Ems' extended schedule, PK Park is no longer able to hold the team.

Soon, voters in Eugene will vote on a bond that asks taxpayers to help pay for a new stadium for the Eugene Emeralds at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

On this edition of Oregon On The Record, you’ll hear voices from several points of view on the ballot initiative including: the initiative's PAC, Eugene's Mayor, Travel Lane County, U of O professors of sports business, the State of Oregon and neighbors near the Fairgrounds.
