Mayor says AL Baseball looking at Vegas! Can you say MAGLEV SERIES!


The City of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is announcing that American League is "looking at Vegas"

Hes not exactly saying which team is looking but, an option that is being run up the flag pole is the Oakland A's who are looking for a stadium.

Speaking of building a stadium here is quote from the Las Vegas Sun...

Mayor: American League baseball team looking at Las Vegas

"Although the mayor didn't mention teams, one possibility could be the Oakland A's. The Washington Post reported more than a year ago that the A's wanted to leave Oakland and ESPN has reported the A's have been wanting a new stadium.
Summertime temperatures in Las Vegas often top 110 degrees. So the mayor indicated that any new stadium built in Las Vegas would need to be a climate-controlled enclosed facility.
"It has to be domed," Goodman said. "They tell us that, the modern stadium, they'd rather have a 45,000-seat facility rather than a 60,000-seat facility and fill the 45,000 rather than have 45,000 people come there and have 15,000 extra seats."
Asked about possible locations, the mayor said "Not telling."
Asked if Cashman Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas 51s, was one of them, Goodman said "Not telling," getting laughs.
However, he did acknowledge that the location was on city-owned property."
This would work as a possible team would play the Anaheim Angels (los angles angles... what ever they are calling them this week), with the Maglev end of the line being at the ARTIC station
