Buies Creek Astros!

Buies Creek, the Astros’ new Class A Advanced affiliate, will share Jim Perry Stadium with Campbell for the next two seasons ahead of a planned relocation to a permanent home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Construction is slated to begin on that stadium next summer with a $33 million price tag.

David Lane, general manager of the Greeneville Astros in the Appalachian League, was tasked by Houston with finding a suitable home for the organization’s new Carolina League club. He said they chose Buies Creek based on proximity to Fayetteville and facility needs.

“Campbell was our top choice,” said Lane, who will now serve as GM of both Buies Creek and the Astros’ Rookie-level affiliate in Tennessee. “They have all the infrastructure we need as far as clubhouses, a nice field, the lights were up to code — everything is already there. It’s an easy plug and play, and it was a good process.”

 

Campbell University will oversee the daily operations of the Astros, taking care of ticketing and promotions, while Lane said he’ll assist as well.
