I expect this could become a litigious issue between city, team and league lawyers.
WHAT DOES A MILLION GET YA THESE DAYS?
So what do the Shuckers get for their million bucks? To start with, probably nothing - as the city probably doesn't have a million to spend.
But IF they did, it would probably go to filling out the seating bowl with amenities like water fountains and handrails. Thats pure speculation, because the article doesn't say what the million dollars is needed for. It could simply be to pay workers overtime. Its shady to think that construction demands a million bucks but city officials wont point out where the money is going.

TENSION IN TWO CITIES ABOUT ONE TEAM
Fans in Huntsville seem torn between boycotting the team and going to the games just long enough to Boo when the Shuckers are announced. Hville officials imply a bare bones field and minimum attention to what the team needs to play its games.
Its not known if the million dollars would guarantee a mid June opening day or not. City Councilman Lawrence said he would rather see the city pay the $1mil to prepare the stadium than give $10k a game in fines.
Even if the city had to pay a fine for every game of the season, it would be less than a million dollars - so fans wait to see what the outcome will be.
