MACON, Ga. (AP) - Macon-Bibb County Mayor Robert Reichert plans to continue to push for a minor league baseball team, even if a feasibility study fails to garner enough votes.

The Macon Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1L45Hln ) reports that the county’s nine commissioners are due to vote Tuesday on whether they should hire a consulting firm to perform a $50,000 study analyzing the financial impact of baseball in Macon-Bibb over a 20-year period.

Macon-Bibb County spokesman Chris Floore said Monday that hiring the Washington, D.C.-based Brailsford & Dunlavey firm remains Reichert’s preferred next step for bringing baseball to Macon. Floore says any other alternatives would only be explored if the resolution is rejected.

Brailsford & Dunlavey has been involved in more than 50 ballpark projects in amateur, minor and professional leagues.
