Taxpayer funded stadium

Taxpayer funded stadium provided? CHECK
AA Minor league baseball team provided? CHECK
Good clean family fun provided? CHECK
On major thorough fair? CHECK
Free parking provided? CHECK

Slam dunk right?

Thats the story of the Port City Roosters AA farm club for Seattle. Played at Brooks Field on UNCW campus.
Moved to Mobile(?) due to lack of attendance/profits

It failed once before in the 1990s with a FREE stadium for them to use.
It failed with a AA team not a single A team

Just how stupid can we get trying repeat failed business?
BTW not one single A team is on the list.
You have single A
You have double AA
You have triple AAA (one step below major league)

Lets let Atlanta try 2 years at Brooks Field to test the theory. No taxpayer funds involved.
No risk for the Taxpayers - limited risk to the Atlanta Braves organization.
Why are there no alternative plans being put forth?
Expand Hardee Field? Use Brooks Field?
It seems to me that there are alternative lower cost plans that could be implemented but none were brought forth - why? Why is this all or nothing?

Best Regards
Vog
