Utah is the Future of America’s Pastime

Big League Utah, a broad-based community coalition, believes Utah is the “Future of America’s Pastime.” Like baseball’s brightest stars, Utah is a 5-tool player for its growth, economy, location, sports culture, and quality of life. The coalition has targeted a shovel-ready site for a new MLB ballpark at the 100-acre Rocky Mountain Power District in Salt Lake City.

Gail Miller and her family company have convened a group of potential investors who are pursuing local ownership of an MLB team. Utah’s business and community leaders are united behind the effort to welcome an MLB expansion team to SLC.
