Top 10 Most Affordable Cities for Sports Nuts

Jul 13 2015

With the 2015 MLB All-Star Game festivities set to blast off tonight at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, OH, you may be asking yourself what exactly makes a city an “All Star” for sports fans?

Since 1992 when Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore opened, conventional wisdom has held that great stadiums make good neighbors, driving economic development and transforming run-down cities into bright, shining meccas for shopping, socializing, and living as well as rooting.
