The untapped market which I have mentioned before is the suburbanites that dont want to come into the city. There are a lot of people out in the burbs that wont come into the city. A centrally located suburban location I have always thought would attract this untapped fan base. The next shot for this will be 2026 unless the cubs are not bluffing, which I think they are.
If suburbia is such a great untapped market of economic possibility, why has no new ballpark (save two; Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, TX; and the Rays park, in St. Pete, which was not built for them) in the last 25 years been built there?
