The City of High Point hosted #DemoDay to celebrate the beginning of the Multi-Use Stadium project. Over 1,000 people were in attendance at the corner of Church and Pine as the City provided t-shirts, pennants, baseballs, hot dogs and cracker jacks. Mayor Bill Bencini made the ceremonial "first pitch" to Mayor-Elect Jay Wagner, and the crowd witnessed the first building in the stadium footprint to be demolished.
