    On Tuesday, the Tarrant Regional Water District made a deal to put historic LaGrave Field in the hands of investors who want to bring it back to life, Tuesday, July 17, 2018.

    A lease deal made between the Tarrant Regional Water District and 'The Save LaGrave Field Foundation' could bring minor-league baseball back to Fort Worth.

    The non-profit foundation agreed to pay the TRWD $1.75 million dollars up-front for a 10-year lease of the field. Monthly payments after the 10-years expires will be $14,500.

    The foundation also agreed to spend $1.5 million on improvements to LaGrave Field over the next 18 months. The group will then spend another $1.5 million in the year and a half after that. The work will restore the 4,100 seat stadium.

    The foundation is also required to secure a minor league team that will play at least 45 regular season games in a league similar to the one in which the Fort Worth Cats played.
