This review is from: Minor League Baseball and Local Economic Development (Sport and Society) (Paperback)
This book charts the stadium and minor league baseball developments in 15 cities in the US. The author spends much of his time discussing the inter-workings with the local governments and the minor league teams. Also into consideration is the city planning and community involvement. This book is very interesting if you are interested in the business side of baseball or the inter-workings of government. The book speaks mainly about developements in the 1980s, some of which have changed over the years. An example would be Durham and their lack of a modern stadium, which changed in the mid 1990s. While some data is out-dated, it is still a good source for infomration.

When it comes to considering, funding and building minor league baseball stadiums, economic development agencies and local governments don't need to reinvent the wheel. This book outlines the experiences of other communities in relatively useful detail. Learn from their experiences and establish a workable platform from which to build your own approach to funding and building (or perhaps deciding not to build) a minor league park in your community.
