The Buies Creek Astros are a Minor League Baseball team that will begin play as a member of the Carolina League in Buies Creek, North Carolina, in 2017. They will play their home games at Jim Perry Stadium on the campus of Campbell University until a new stadium in nearby Fayetteville is built for the 2019 season. The team will be the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Houston Astros, who also own the team.

Team history

The Astros began to scout locations for a baseball stadium to locate a team in Fayetteville in April 2016.[1] In August 2016, a two-team expansion to the Carolina League was approved, with the first franchise assigned to Kinston, North Carolina.[2]

The Fayetteville City Council approved plans to build a new stadium. The stadium will be built by the 2019 season, while the team will need to find a temporary location to play the 2017 and 2018 seasons.[3][4] On November 17, it was announced the team would play at Jim Perry Stadium on the campus of Campbell University in Buies Creek and be known as the Buies Creek Astros for their first two seasons.[5][6]
