Team Dave and a group calling itself the Better Boise Coalition is aiming to commission yet another survey about the feasibility of building a minor league baseball park in Boise.
The Boise Hawks team is affiliated with the Chicago Cubs and their home at Wrigley Field is 97 years old–they just don’t build them like they used to!
We question the need for the multitude of studies, the wisdom of spending public money, and the potential for success.
Currently in the area we have Bronco Stadium, a soon to be built track and high school football facility at the old East Jr. High site, Taco Bell Arena, The Morrison Center, the Centre on the Grove, Qwest Arena, a private concert venue in Eagle, The Idaho Center in Nampa, Nampa Civic Center, Les Bois Race Track, and the Fairgrounds. Is there really a need for yet another venue? The issue is selling tickets, not creating more seats.
