Latest Construction Update (10-2-12)…

On Tuesday, October 2, construction crews took the next step in building a brand-new home for the Charlotte Knights.

Beginning around 8:00 AM, crews began the process to tear down the Virginia Paper Company Building, which currently sits in what will be center field at BB&T Ballpark. The Knights new home is on schedule to be completed in time for the 2014 season.

I, along with Homer the Dragon, made the trek to Charlotte from Fort Mill to be on-hand for today’s event. We arrived around 7:15 AM and crews were taking the early steps in their process.

Homer was excited to meet members of the construction crew and couldn’t wait to pick up a sledgehammer and get started! Members of the media were also on-hand to cover the event and I made sure to capture the moment with many photos!

The building will take several days to come down and fans can keep up with the process right here in “Knight Fever”.

Here are a few photos from today, as well as a musical slideshow of Homer’s work on-site!
