Seventh Inning Questions

I’ve been thinking a lot about the business of minor league ball. A few questions: How much would a local business pay for the naming rights to a new stadium? What businesses might be likely candidates?

Baseball is a business, but it is not like any other business. There is no Grocery Store League that determines where chains can put stores. Grocery stores open and close based on their ability to handle the competition.

Baseball people love to talk about the competition on the field. The competition off the field is another matter.
