Callers spurn new stadium, 3-1

It's your call

October 07, 1991

Perhaps because it was a weekend to pay homage to Memorial Stadium, nearly three out of four respondents to "It's Your Call" said they were not in favor of the new stadium at Camden Yards.

With the impending layoff of 1,766 workers to help the state offset a $450 million deficit looming, 773 of 1,080 callers (72 percent) said the $105.4 million for the ballpark, though not being funded by taxpayers, could be better used elsewhere. The other 307 (28 percent) said they were in favor of the new stadium.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
