not without taking more of the park from the neighborhood as the tennis center has done.
but who cares about the neighbors, eh?
why would the tennis folks want to be in an oversized location that puts seating farther away from the action and lose (sun, fresh air etc.) the atmosphere that they have?
doesn't make sense after the city has sunk more than $15M into the complex to tear it apart.
with only hwy 40 nearby it's not a realistic location for an mlb franchise.
olympic stadium already has cfl dates and a running track would have to be anchored to the floor, this was tried there in the late 70's and proved to be a problem.
there's also no room for a grass "tray" like glendale, on the tower end are the pools and the other is the infrastructure for the building - load bearing towers that can't be moved.
phoenix stadium was designed with the tray in mind.
btw - mlb isn't interested
