Professional baseball is apparently a step closer to becoming reality in Sugar Land. According to city sources, Sugar Land has reached an understanding with the architectural firm Opening Day Partners to build a stadium there.

City council must still vote, so it's not quite a done deal. That vote will be this Tuesday at Sugar Land City Hall.

The proposed stadium should seat about 7,500 and is to be part of a larger cultural and entertainment complex the city is working to build nearby.
