Minor League Deal Newsbeat

Larry Lucchino: Downtown park will be R.I. gem - Providence, RI

Self-serving tripe from Larry Lucchino.

Buy the land and build the stadium yourself, Larry. The taxpayers have more worthwhile things to spend their money on.

New Britain: Baseball Town No More – The Hardball Times

The community team link is one sided. Baseball is a business. Taxpayers and fans need to keep this fact in mind, lest they continue to be used and abused.

“You’ve got hundreds of thousands of people in central Connecticut who are used to coming to New Britain Stadium,” Stewart said. “They’re still going to come as long as it’s good, quality baseball. Baseball has been a staple of the New Britain community for the last [33] years — since before I was born. … It certainly was always a part of growing up in New Britain.”
