I guess I am just the opposite, if the Astros had of moved to the NW side of town as proposed instead of downtown, I probably would have never moved and left the Houston area. Having a team 5 miles away with good roads on my side of town would have been too good to leave. But having to drive downtown and the expensive parking was too much of an effort to be a factor in keeping me there.
When I lived in Billings I was only 5 houses away from dead centerfield at Cobb Stadium which was the home field for the Billings Mustangs. It was great. We could hear the music during practice and warm-up before the games. We would walk down and get in as early as we could. We loved it.
