Fremont + San Jose ballpark news

I covered last night's ballpark workshop. I didn't catch anything new, but KTVU reporter Lloyd LaCuesta did. I took a screengrab.

This is considered a green light to talk with San Jose, a city that has to overcome territorial rights restrictions (Santa Clara County is Giants territory). Despite this, they have four things in their favor: a ballpark site, an adjacent site to develop, future BART and Caltrain/High Speed Rail nearby, and an already completed environmental impact report. I have received a few messages indicating that territorial rights will be discussed this week at the Winter meetings. Those talks may be limited to television rights as related to the launch of the MLB Network. They may be expanded to include Santa Clara County.

I will be at the Fremont City Council session tomorrow evening and will report here and at the ballpark blog.
