I wish I could do a poll function with this forum. I think the jury is still out, but, I would tend to think that it is not a good investment. I have ordered "Minor League Baseball and Economic Development" and believe it should have some great case studies on this.
Do you think it is a catalyst?
Do you think the investment for single-A minor league teams is worthwhile?
How do you measure the economic benefit (if any) to the surrounding area?
