NASHVILLE COUNCIL REJECTS STADIUM PROPOSAL; BYE-BYE BASEBALL
Published September 27, 1994
The Nashville Metro Council turned back a proposal that would have allowed the public to vote on a tax to fund a new $48M baseball stadium. Following the vote, Nashville Sounds President Larry Schmittou declared that he will no longer attempt to attract a MLB franchise to Nashville. An "embittered" Schmittou said that the council had "not only scuttled" efforts to bring MLB to Nashville, but "failed the public as well." The defeat also blunted Shmittou's "guarantee" that he would bring a CFL franchise to the city (Jeff Wilkinson, Nashville BANNER, 9/21).
