Spring training touches all bases of Arizona's West Valley economy
The Glendale Star
While everyone enjoys America's greatest pastime during great Arizona spring weather, many don't realize that baseball is big business year round. West Valley politicians and business leaders recently reviewed the increase of tourist dollars spent around spring training baseball facilities. Mark Coronado, president of the Cactus League, discussed the importance of having spring training baseball in the West Valley. "The 2012 numbers are staggering, to say the least," Coronado said. "The survey said almost 70 percent of individuals who attend a Cactus League game specifically come to the area for baseball. The survey also said that up from 2007, now visitors are staying an average of one day and a half longer (5.3 days) as opposed to four days in 2007."

Chicago showing new approach to sporting events
Crain's Chicago Business
On the surface, hosting the Big Ten men's basketball tournament appears to be a perfect fit for the city of Chicago: the central location, the United Center, the bevy of tourist hot spots, the hordes of alumni from each school. That's what made the conference's 2006 decision to snub the Windy City and give Indianapolis the event for five straight years between 2008 and 2012 a major reality check. Seven years later, with the event returning to the United Center March 14-17 for the first time since 2007, Chicago has a renewed approach.

Truckee, Calif., sled dog race cancelled
KRXI-TV
The Central Sierra's first sled dog race in 16 years, slated for March 2-3 during the upcoming Snowfest celebration, was recently cancelled due to poor snow conditions at the Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort near Donner Pass in California. The Truckee-Tahoe area hasn't had a significant snowstorm since the Christmas holidays nearly two months ago. Fortunately resorts are still sitting on a solid snowpack due to cold temps this winter and skiing and riding has been good. Organizers of this year's Jack London Commemorative Sierra Sled Dog Derby said that they "could not ensure their ability to conduct the race in a manner that would guarantee safety for both the dogs and mushers."
