Wyandotte County Buys T-Bones Baseball Stadium

Nov 20, 2013

Leaders of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan., have announced plans to purchase and renovate Community America Ballpark – the home of the T-Bones – for $8 million. It would join a growing list of publicly subsidized sports venues. It's good news for baseball fans and  for the Village West shopping and entertainment area – but how should taxpayers feel?  Host Brian Ellison discusses the pros and cons behind the decision with two of the decision-makers behind the proposed purchase. Guests:

  • Mike Taylor, public relations director for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County
  • Adam Ehlert, owner and president of the Kansas City T-Bones
