With the Riverfront ballpark prospects flagging and fading and with the Sounds Management looking more and more like they were all hat and no spurs, Nashville Post writer Richard Lawson looks ahead to what could be if the deal falls through, including the possibility of still building a ballpark and bringing in a team other than the Sounds.
Last week I had the chance to visit the attractive Downtown/Riverfront ballpark in Fort Worth, Texas where the Fort Worth Cats (an instructional league team lower than Single A) plays. It's a picturesque setting for baseball:
As I said, that is merely instructional league. If the Sounds don't want to play on the most valuable piece of property available in Tennessee (or the southeast?), then make that pitch to Cal Ripken, Jr. and see if he and his minor league franchise take a swing at it.
