There's no way Middle Tennessee could support a major league baseball team. From what I've heard, a MLB team needs to draw in the neighborhood of 30,000 fans per game, or more, to be financially viable. Nashville has had minor league teams for decades and has problems supporting AAA ball, averaging less than 10,000 fans per game in a shorter season. They'll have a AAA franchise for a while, then AA for a while, then AAA again. But if they can't remain as a viable market for a AAA team on a long-term basis, nobody will invest the money to put a MLB team in Nashville. You should also remember that Nashville nearly lost its hockey team a few years ago, because they weren't averaging 14,000 fans or so per game. That's something else a potential MLB owner would consider before putting a team here. They will also consider the fact that the city council has been reluctant to build a new ballpark for minor league baseball, so you can imagine they'll also balk at funding a major league park. And no, please don't bring up the idea that a MLB team could share LP Field with the Titans.
