Josh Leventhal, a blogger for baseballamerica.com, has a nice response to the weekend’s T-D coverage of the ongoing baseball saga.
He writes, “Discounting the importance of a ballpark and fan experience is what got Richmond into this mess.
Triple-A baseball is not coming back to Richmond, certainly not anytime soon. If Richmond focuses its attention on what level of play it “deserves” rather than the more pressing problem of building a new ballpark, it might find itself without any baseball players to watch for quite awhile.”
Look for a BizSense story on how a new ball club can run a better business than the Richmond Braves, and what it might mean for other businesses in town.
