The only way this is worth it, is if you could easily convert the pitch into an Amphitheater and put it as the West Harbor. A small concert venue would certainly help out that area. We already have a perfectly serviceable ballpark at Bernie Arbor, and given how (un)popular baseball is in these parts. I have doubts that the Hamilton Thunderbirds are drawing close to their 3,000 capacity at Bernie Arbor, so what is really the point of adding to our infrastructure costs for a facility that isn't going to be used. Without at least a AAA team affiliated with the Blue Jays, it's a lost cause as you need a tenant who pays rent and pays for the maintenance costs. The Pan-Am games can rent the Rogers Center for baseball. Save the money and put it towards making a better, renewed athletic district at Ivor Wynne, or better yet, reimburse the future fund.
