Las Vegas still in the running for MLB track and field franchise | Newstalk Florida



The City of Oakland and Athletics Property are still building a new stadium,

Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics ownership group has certainly perfected the Stadium Game. Track and field ownership has received good news from officials in Alameda County, Calif., As the county may agree to the creation of a special tax district that could help fund the goal of John Fisher and his partners. Athletics financiers to build a village stadium on the Oakland waterfront. The city of Oakland and the owners of Athletic are still trying to figure out how the project can go. But that doesn’t mean Las Vegas is out of sight as a potential landing point for Fisher’s business. The Athletics Sales Department decided to ask the customers of Minor League Baseball Las Vegas Aviators questions about the Nevada market and what those customers think about the possibility of Major League Baseball coming to the market. Las Vegas.

Athletics’ marketing department told potential Las Vegas Athletics clients that the team was looking to build a baseball stadium “on or near the Las Vegas Strip.” Fisher and athletics president Dave Kaval surveyed more than 20 possible stadium sites during six scouting missions to Las Vegas. The owners of Athletics wanted to know if a Las Vegas Major League stadium should be domed or open-air. Las Vegas is a desert place that gets terribly hot during the summer. Athletics ownership also asked for personal seat licenses and whether consumers would obtain the licenses with PSL money, presumably going to fund a stadium in Las Vegas. Athletic ownership has done a good job of bringing Oakland and Las Vegas into a battle for baseball and MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is happy because “the A’s will continue to pursue the Oakland project as well as the alternative of Las Vegas “. It could turn off the interest of Oakland area baseball consumers in the team. But this is only business.
