Sholten Singer/The Herald-Dispatch Rendering of the future Marshall Baseball Stadium seen during an announcement of the purchase of the property for the stadium on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019, along 24th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues in Huntington.

HUNTINGTON - Members of the Huntington Municipal Development Authority agreed Monday to sell the future site of the Marshall University baseball stadium to the university.

Members of the Huntington Municipal Development Authority, or HMDA, were previously undecided about what to do with the two properties, which consisted of a warehouse and parking lot of the former Flint Group Pigments. They had considered donating the properties to the university or retaining ownership of it in a public-private partnership.
