The Missouri House has held another hearing on the St. Louis Cardinals’ request for state assistance in the team’s bid for a new downtown ballpark. In addition to those who say the proposal would be of great benefit to the city and the state, there were those speaking in opposition to the idea. Among those opposed is televangelist Larry Rice, who warns there is no solid limit to the amount of tax dollars that could be used by the team. Rice says this deal could end up like the one that resulted in the TWA Dome being built for the St. Louis Rams. He says that while a new stadium might make people feel good, the price tag could be very costly. The Cardinals have said they need a new stadium to remain competetive, both on and off the field, and lack of a new ballpark might force the team to move out of the city.
