Beaverton in running for new Beavers baseball stadium

    Beaverton has entered the picture as the possible new home for the Portland Beavers.

    Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle is pitching his city as an ideal setting for minor league baseball when the Beavers leave PGE Park. And team owner Merritt Paulson is interested.

    “I believe a Beaverton home for the Beavers could present a tremendous fit for both the local community and our organization,” Paulson said in a July 13 letter to Doyle. “The venue impact both from an economic and community perspective would be significant for Beaverton.”

    Conversations between Paulson and Beaverton became formal last week, when Doyle expressed Beaverton’s interest in writing. Beaverton leaders say the site of the former Westgate Theatre, now owned by Beaverton and regional government Metro, has emerged as a possible location.
