    Not too many high schools have parks which seat a few thousand.

    Memphis is triple A.

    I have read that if the city finds the sounds in default, they could let the developer go ahead and build the stadium, and then try to bring in a new team to play there.

    Not to mention, I doubt a major league team wants its million dollar prospects having to use high school facilities.

    The Sounds would be better off if they built a stadium down South like in Franklin. i know the Mayor would not mind.

    that is not what it says
    Streuver Bro.s really wants nothing to do with the ballpark anyway

    there interest is in the Condo /Hotel / Retail development surrounding the park. Now, they've got a few more acres to build on.

    building a ballpark to try and lure a minor league affiliate would be a bad business decision, .... unless they were trying to lure an MLB team here, and that's not the case

    Yeah that stadium is a site to see. That the Lookouts (Reds) Stadium I believe. I know there's another stadium by that skate park, maybe they moved..

    I know. Is there a need to seat a few thousand for a minor league game? I couldn't imagine more than 200 people showing up to those per game.
