Abstract: The past decade has witnessed unprecedented growth in the construction of new sports facilities. While offering the latest in fan amenities and team facilities, new sports venues also add considerable value to a franchise and generate excitement and growth potential in the communities where they are built. Three of the newest Major League ballparks built in the urban centers of Denver, Cleveland and Baltimore are successful results of urban redevelopment planning – bringing fans downtown and back to the game of baseball in record numbers.
