Political leaders and everyday Utahns are united behind the Power District as the ideal MLB stadium site

On Wednesday, December 20, Steve Starks, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Company, joined DJ and PK on KSL Sports Zone to discuss the steps that Big League Utah is taking to position the Beehive State as the “Future of America’s Pastime.”  

Starks explained that since Big League Utah launched last summer, Salt Lake City has entered the national radar as one of the strongest potential expansion markets. He detailed the coalition’s compelling pitch, backed by an experienced ownership group with a targeted shovel-ready site for a proposed ballpark.  

“The Power District is the most accessible site on the market,” noted Starks. “You could fly into the airport and, in five minutes, be at the ballpark to go watch a game. Then, hopefully, you spend the night in Salt Lake City before going to the National Parks in the summer. It becomes part of our tourism ecosystem.” 

Ahead of the interview, Big League Utah announced the creation of honorary and community advisory boards comprised of respected political and community leaders to help advance the multi-faceted campaign. Briefly introducing the new sectors, Starks illustrated the overwhelming public support for the initiative.  

“We have a community that loves sports and, in particular, loves baseball,” he explained. “Today’s announcement speaks to broad community support from political leaders to everyday Utahns united behind the Power District as the ideal site to build a Major League Baseball stadium.”
