It’s home to a car wash offering $14 exterior cleans, but soon, a parcel of land on Baltimore Street in Hagerstown may serve a different purpose: right field. The Maryland Stadium Authority is aiming to build a $70 million ballpark in the Western Maryland city, which will gain a professional baseball team in 2024. To obtain the land where the team would play, the stadium authority has bought a laundromat, a Washington County government building, and the old Herald-Mail newspaper building. The fourth and final parcel of land it needs to purchase is the Hagerstown Auto Spa. The car wash, however, has not yet agreed to terms with the stadium authority after months of negotiations.
