CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Construction on uptown Charlotte's new baseball park is officially under way.

On Tuesday, crews started tearing down the Virginia Paper building.

"It's been a long time coming, it's been a long process, but it's now very satisfying that the project is getting under way and we're going to be able to play baseball in 2014," said Jim Schumacher of the Charlotte Knights.
