I'm not a Memphian but visit your city 5-6 times a year. AZP, during the season, is a must stop for me and my family. I prefer driving 3 hours south to Memphis to see the Redbirds than drive 1 hour north to see the Cardinals. During our visits, which include hotels, meals, fuel, souvenirs, etc, we help "stimulate" the cities economy by paying sales tax. This just makes sense to me for the city to offer a facility to bring in visitors and residents alike for quality entertainment. The Cardinals organization, the best in the Bigs, would be an ideal business partner.
