Baseball Business

Mr. Thompson is correct about beer being necessary to minor league baseball; serving alcohol is the only way to profit from minor league ball. The nationwide pattern for minor league ball is: taxpayers fund a state-of-the-art stadium, minor league team agrees to short-team lease as long as beer can be sold, people do attend for the first three years, but as attendance falls off, team moves to another community that has just built (or promises to build) a new state-of-the art stadium. NO team will agree to a 20 year lease! Minor league baseball makes the money while the community pays for everything!
