To the editor:
The Mississippi Braves did it right. The Atlanta Braves own the minor league team in Pearl, Mississippi and Trustmark owns the stadium — just the opposite that exists in Mobile. Any issues with the Trustmark Stadium is between the Braves organization and Trustmark, not the taxpayers. I am sure there were incentives to get the team there, but the Braves, the city of Pearl and state of Mississippi did it right.
It’s a lesson Mobile needs to learn. A city like Mobile has no business building and maintaining stadiums. Too many failures in structures, like the convention center, the civic center, the cruise terminal and other buildings have haunted Mobile.
