In "Skybox Skeptics" [Governing, March], my colleague Josh Goodman writes about the growing difficulty baseball teams are having leveraging public money for new stadiums. "The Minnesota Twins have spent a decade trying to win public funds for a new ballpark," he notes, "but have been rebuffed by the legislature every time, most recently last year."
But the stadium debate in my native state may take an unexpected turn following the death of Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett. Lawmakers already are getting phone calls from the public calling for a new stadium to be built and named for the Twins' beloved center fielder.
In my book, the odds in favor of this happening are 34-to-1.
