“It’s very exciting and very important to the community that the Jammers will stay in Jamestown,” said Russell E. Diethrick. “I look forward to outstanding, fun baseball and a thrilling atmosphere at the stadium, in what will be a destination point for many people not only locally but to travelers visiting town.”
