Johnson, Arthur T. Minor League Baseball and Local Economic Development. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1993.
Annotation / Notes: Johnson examines the public policy issues related to minor league baseball, among the most popular of American minor league enterprises. Case studies explore the way in which the "stadium issue" often raises political controversy regarding public control and economic development. One chapter focuses on Frederick, Maryland, and the state and local policies that led to construction of a stadium for the Frederick Keys franchise. Johnson concludes that the direct economic contribution of minor league sports to local economies is relatively small, though they may enhance general development efforts.
