Podcast: Bloomberg on Ballparks

One of my favorite parts of summer is baseball. The home of the Detroit Tigers, Comerica Park, reigns as my favorite ballpark ever, but my boyfriend and I enjoy visiting stadiums all over the place.

The topic of a recent podcast by Bloomberg on the Economy was ballparks. Janet Marie Smith, senior vice president of planning and development for the Boston Red Sox spoke with Bloomberg's Tom Keene about the new yards in New York, stadium architecture and the economics of ticket pricing. It was fascinating and a must-hear for all baseball junkies.

Scroll down to "Smith Calls New Ballparks `Wonderful' for Baseball" and either download or listen to the MP3. It's about a half hour and every bit of it is interesting.
