If bringing big-league baseball to North Carolina means more taxes, a lot of people in the state say they don't want it.
Six in 10 Mecklenburg County residents would vote against using tax money to build a stadium in downtown Charlotte, according to the Charlotte Observer/WCNC-TV poll.
More than two-thirds wouldn't drive about 80 miles to see a game near Greensboro, where businessman Don Beaver wants to move the Minnesota Twins if baseball owners let him.
A poll conducted earlier this month in and around Greensboro and Winston-Salem showed 71 percent against the new taxes to build a ballpark and only 20 percent in favor.
Beaver thinks he can change minds with what he called an educational campaign.
