Key Highlights

[00:01 – 12:21] Developing Spaces for the Glory of Sports

  • John Loar is the managing director at Music City Baseball, responsible for all the day-to-day business operations at the company.
  • Nashville is a good location for a sports and entertainment complex because it has a high demand for tourist attractions and its economy is growing.
  • It is possible to have a variety of opportunities to participate in sports, and you want to look at a covered condition facility where you can accommodate that.

[12:20 – 31:44] Collaboration for Adding Value is the Key

  • John talks about how his team is considering partnering with a historically black college or university in the area.
  • MLB is trying to find ways to keep the fans engaged, especially younger ones, and they believe in creating a fan experience rather than just relying on game length or broadcast timing.
  • However, there are still some challenges that new ballpark developments face, such as real estate issues and the potential for relocation. MLB is working to address these challenges.

[31:45 – 33:16] Closing Segment

  • The conversation spurred questions from 25-year-old sports fans, so the population is engaged.
