I don't know why ee have such short memories:
Free stadium ? Check
AA MiL baseball team? Check
On a major thorough fair? Check
Great family entertainment? Check
And yet this team the Port City Roosters moved due to lack of attendance. No major money influx from the city nor from the parent team the Seattle Mariners.
And yet they failed
AA is certainly more entertaining than single A teams are.
Again neither the city nor the team had a major exposure to losses but they left town after what one season maybe two?
And we want to invest $24M for this Single A team?
We've been down this road before and no matter how hard you try to revise history - you can't.
We are attempting to throw away money trying to prove to ourselves that we are a baseball town when history says otherwise.
