Phil Ruffin Meeting Oakland A’s Confirms Zennie62/ONN 2021 Report On Ballpark At Las Vegas Fairgrounds

On November 25th, 2021, and here at Oakland News Now Blog, this vlogger installed a post called “Oakland A’s Ballpark: Las Vegas Festival Grounds To Be Future Home Of Oakland Athletics” (which you can read here).  I wrote, in part:

According to Brian Horwath of the Las Vegas Sun, and in a post dated July 23rd, 2021, the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, owned by Billionaire Phil Ruffin, “stood out”. Kaval was quoted as saying “On the north Strip at the Festival Grounds, to have that view back down the entire Strip, that would be pretty iconic.”

But, in addition to that comment, Mr Ruffin himself was on a push to get his Festival Grounds considered as a future home for the A’s. On July 5th, 2021 it was reported that he told the The Wichita Eagle earlier that week that he was “scheduled to meet with a group of investors leading the push to bring the A’s to Las Vegas. I think they want to talk to me about my land. The good part about baseball is they have 88 home games. So, that would be a very big deal. You wouldn’t be able to find a room in Vegas if that goes through.”

Then, even with my best efforts to work friends in Las Vegas, even while there for the 2022 NFL Draft, I was not able to uncover news to follow up on my story.  But the A’s were also focused on getting BDCD approval, which happened.  That was no small effort.

But even with that, the Las Festival Grounds were always in play.  Now, came big news on Tuesday of this week:

Phil Ruffin reportedly to meet with MLB’s Oakland Athletics for a potential Vegas ballpark site next to Circus Circus

(From here)

Phil Ruffin, a Las Vegas casino mogul who owns Treasure Island and Circus Circus, is reportedly exploring a potential site for a new ballpark for the California-based Oakland Athletics, a professional baseball team in the MLB.

But why would Mr. Ruffin fly to Oakland, rather than John Fisher and Dave Kaval flying to Las Vegas?  I believe there is a reason that involves Howard Terminal.  I think there may be an alternative where Ruffin helps develop the Howard Terminal site, but builds the ballpark in Las Vegas.

Stay tuned.

The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
