If there was a decent league and a properly marketed team, especially if the canal project brings people down there - it could thrive. In my opinion there is no better place in Edmonton to spend a summer evening than Telus Field. Watching the joke that is the Prospects appeals to nobody though.
Such a wonderful facility even without the Canal project. I don't even like baseball and I'd go to a few games just to sit in the stadium in the rivervalley and have a dog and a beer. More things to do around the area would be good though. The rossdale flat has a nice vibe to it and I like walking around there, just nothing much to do there yet.
